    parents

    hi there,

    Please proofread

    Many parents do not allow their children to start dating at too early age.

    Many parents do not like their children to go on dates when they are still students.

    Thanks

    sunny

    Re: parents

    Good! A couple of small points -

    Many parents do not allow their children to start dating at tooearly an age.

    Many parents do not like their children to go on dates when/while they are still students.

    'While' in the second sentence is my preference as a British English speaker. I am not sure Americans would necessarily agree with me.

    Re: parents

    I usually hear the first one to be:

    Many parents do not allow their children to start dating at an early age.

    With the second: I agree with Horsa.
