Sophomore girl dating 8th grade boy Easy adult chat
She had a lot of guy friends on the baseball and football teams.She also hated to see the drama that her friends went through with boys when they were younger.I think your attitude is "right on." She is dating on training wheels.This is a perfect time for her to start to figure things out and for you to guide her.She was thrilled holding hands but when he wanted to kiss she got cold feet (not open mouth thank God, but still!) So she decided to break up with him and it was very hard.
I am with you on allowing "dating" but I also had a friend who, like your friend, didn't permit it.She learned what her limits and boundaries are and should be, and best of all she learned how to say NO and back away from something she clearly wasn't ready for.My friend agreed that was good, but she still doesn't think it's appropriate for kids this age to have these experiences (and I respect her opinion.) So just curious what you all think?I was always so jealous of my friends who talked to their parents about boyfriends and problems that they had. Like you, I had my first boyfriend at 13 who also tried to put his tongue down my throat.It is a disservice to allow our girls to be put into this situation when they are clearly too young to 1) be kissing, 2) deal with the heartache of breaking up, and 3) deal with the feelings of love.
