Love is in the air… and maybe striking some terror in the hearts of parents.

On Thursday's Up to Date, psychologist Wes Crenshaw joins us with his rules for teenage dating. We'll talk about long term teen and young adult relationships, managing long distance teen relationships and more.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
