Some of the best teenage dating books

If your teen has hit that age where they are starting to think about dating, then you will find this list of teenage dating books very handy!

These are books that will help to prepare both you (the parent) and your child for dating. If you're unsure about how to approach dating, and what type of conversations you should be having, then these teenage dating books will help. 

It is better to be prepared and to start thinking about dating before it actually starts happening. This way you can start to have positive conversations with your teen, and make sure that they are ready.  And with a clear understanding of  sexual consent being even more important  for teens today than ever before (remember the Brock Turner case in the United States, in 2016?), these are vital conversations that we need to have to ensure our teens stay safe.

So if you don't want to spend 'date night' worrying about your child, then these teenage dating books will help.

Many of the sex education books for teens and teenagers will also include dating in them. I haven't included them in this list though, mainly because I'm assuming that if you're searching on google for teenage dating books, then you are wanting a book that will actually help. And the books in this list will do that!

You will only find books in this list that are readily available at bookshops today.

You can find more books about different topics in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children

And if you find this list a little overwhelming, you might want to look at the age-appropriate list of sex education books.

NOTE: Before passing any book to your child or reading the book with your child, you should read it yourself first. I might think it is a great book for a certain age child or that the information is valuable, but you may disagree. You need to choose books that reflect your values and the messages you want your child to receive.
