Morning Maddhouse: Situation Thursdays (5/10)

My son is in 8th grade and he has a little girlfriend.  Its cool, my wife and I don’t mind.  But now he wants to go on dates with her.  To the mall and the movies.  The other day he asked could she come to the house and hang out for a couple hours.  We said no and he has been upset ever since.  What do you think?  Should we allow this??
