It all starts out innocently enough,
and can at first be a simple yearning from afar
and starry-eyed notions of romance.
But things aren't what they used to be.

Now, in addition to all of the usual urges and temptations,
kids have the interwebz, with online dating,
and cellphones with endless chatting or texting.
Not to mention sex on billboards, in TV and movies. Don't even get me started on the lyrics to popular songs.
Before you know it, your teenager may be out of control. Warning signs include:
Excessive concern with appearance
Practicing pick-up lines
Working on smooth and not-so-smooth moves
Scrolling for the naughty bits on the innertubez
Hanging out with questionable friends
until all hours
getting up to who knows what
with who knows who.
Of course there will be plenty of awkwardness,
as well as trials and tribulations.
There is a solution to all this hanky-panky.
After that, things settle down considerably, and your furry friend may be able to have a calm relationship with that special someone.
