13 yr old dating

Question

My 13 year old son (8th grade) started dating this year. Neither my husband or I did any dating until college, so we feel clueless in regards to setting boundaries for kids this young. I didn't see a section on dating under the topics section? Do you have any advice or guidance for us?

The girl he just started "hanging out with" invited him home after school the other day (on an early release day). I assumed there would be a parent home, but afterwards found out they were home alone for 5 hours. (Her mom was fine with this and likes our son). I trust the kids --they're both responsible and good students, but I feel we need to lay down some rules now, rather than later, for everybody's benefit.
