I see it everywhere, and i assume that it is not healthy because some children take relationships way too seriously, and act like they will be together forever. Children should be focusing on graduating school so they can get a scholarship to go to school for a career they want to have in the future. Dating at a young age is a distraction, and a middle school/highschool relationship will only last if you are very lucky, but that's rare. What makes me sick, too, is that parents encourage their kids to date at a young age. Why? Dating is for grown adults, not immature children who haven't reached adulthood.
