Teenager dating at age13 to17
When you’re in a relationship, you tend to neglect your priorities, especially your studies.
Rather than study, you’d rather text or Skype with your significant other. Dealing with a lovers’ quarrel can mean you don’t get to study for your big exams the next day and as a result, your grades can suffer.
