Sophomore girl dating 8th grade boy
I don't think that dating at 13 is as innocent as you think.Atleast as soon as hormones hit the boy it wont be.When I was 13, I was busy hanging out with my girl friends to even think about boys yet i dont believe we've gone back in time and kids have gotten more innocent but I can tell you that when I was 13 I was the only girl in the neighborhood who had never "french kissed" anyone.In fact the day I kissed someone was because around 20 kids decided I waited to long (I was then 14) so they decided I was going to kiss one of them. kissing, and when I hit 15 I was doing more than kissing too.
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.
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.
Nice to see so many thoughtful opinions and insights on the subject.
Our daughters are ALL very lucky to have such caring moms :) S H, yes I'm aware of what you are talking about re the group thing, and I know that can and does happen, but because our downtown is only two blocks long it's pretty easy for me to monitor the activity.
