I believe that there is much value in many principles of the Courtship Movement. We have put many aspects of Christian Courtship into practice in our own home. I believe that each family must consider carefully how they will go about the process of managing their children's transitions into adulthood, and that what is right for one family may not necessarily be right for another. The following is only one mother's response to certain aspects of the courtship movement, and will likely be misunderstood if not read against the backdrop of the content of parts 1 and 2 of this series.
