12 year old dating dating males with divored parents

This question seems really vague but it doesn't seem like the scenario is going too badly with your current approach.
So far I've been able to steer through a very narrow navigable channel, but I'd like to establish a dating policy (which I didn't need to do when my other son was this age, because he was slow to mature and a bit socially awkward).
I told him, "It's too soon for 'dating' but 'play dates' are fine; and every day is too often for talking to her on the phone." (He has OCD and tends to want to phone friends compulsively.) But he wants to know when he can 'date' and I don't know what to say.
There's something to be said for "dating" when it's still 99.9% innocent re: personal confidence about later more "real" relationships.
It doesn't sound like the kids are doing anything age-inappropriate, or inappropriate in general.
If you don't feel comfortable helping them playact "real dating" (movies, dinners, etc) then don't do it.
While the couple have around one million followers, they only follow each other.I want to caution you against dismissing the relationship as merely play dates.It wasn't too long ago when it wasn't unusual for people to start their own family at age 13 or 14.Just after her recent 12th birthday, Akama wrote on Zhang's Weibo page, "Wait until I'm old enough to marry you, and then I'm going to say 'I do." Zhang responded, "I simply can't wait for these next four birthdays of yours to pass, I'm counting down each one." And they don't care if you think their relationship is odd, or inappropriate."There's nothing we can do about this, nor do we feel the need to prove anything to these people," Zhang wrote on his page.
