In brief: Depends on what kind
Of date, whether parents know and trust the date and how safe the plans.
Need to know if date will involve drugs or alcohol. Date involving going to the corner ice-cream parlor in a safe neighborhood should be ok for a 13-year-old. Date with a druggie without an anticipated time to return is never ok. Parents are boss till child reaches 18 years, degree of control is up to them & not to the child.
