The Grade is a new dating app available in the i Tunes store.Based in New York, users are graded based on their profiles, messaging and grammar, so that prospective dates will know what they’re getting into.Cliff Lerner, CEO of The Grade, explained to me via email how it works: Social Times: How does the grading work?
I can say this with a considerable amount of confidence and insight given that I am raising a 10-year-old daughter who is in fifth grade.
Now, don’t get me wrong, many in my generation developed faster than our parents were ready for.
Child development experts at the Kids Health website state that break-ups can be especially intense and devastating for teenagers.
The heartbreak associated with an ending relationship can cause your teenager to miss school or lose interest in classes that he otherwise previously enjoyed.
In fact, the University of Florida IFAS Extension website states that frequent dating among teens is associated with poor school performance and limited education goals.
To help your teen experience a healthy dating life when he’s ready, it is important to understand how different aspects of dating can affect his grades.We all know there’s no handbook on parenting or caregiving.We all know kids sometimes do things that they have no business doing; as a former teen mom, I can strongly attest to this.What’s here and right now is my daughter’s entrance into puberty at 10 years old and the countless girls in her age group who are already B-cup deep in the process.What’s here and right now is the question of how much they know about dating, relationships and sex and how well-equipped they are by the adults in their life to navigate these realms.As its name suggests, The Grade asks people to rank other users on a scale from A to F based on three criteria: quality of messages, profile photos and description and, finally, peer review.
