Chinuch Roundtable: Is it Worse to Talk to Girls Online or in Person?

Dear Chinuch Roundtable, I recently noticed that my teenage son was spending more time online than usual. The computer is in the living room, so I’m sure that he wasn’t chas v’sholom looking at anything that he shouldn’t. When I asked him what he was doing, he reluctantly admitted that he was chatting with a girl on Facebook. He told me that they had even gone for walks together a few times.

While it’s true that in general boys and girls his age shouldn’t socialize, my son tends to be depressed and moody, and since he met this girl he’s been much happier. Should I allow the relationship to continue? Should I allow them to correspond only online, or only in person?

Waiting eagerly for your advice
