  • When my son was 4 he came home from pre-school telling me that he was getting married to one of the little girls in the class...
    I replied with: "Congratulations." *smile*

    It's a crush, just let it be... oh, and whatever you do...don't tease him about it.

  • There is nothing you need to do. There is no concern here. REMEMBER, children still have their innocence, so they don't process what having a girlfriend even really is like we would.

    This reminds me of a drawing I saw today...the caption said, "What do you see?" I very clearly saw a naked couple in an intimate pose, but the study said children are unable to see this pose. Instead they see 9 dolphins.......After I read there were 9 dolphins, it took me a minute to actually find the dolphins in the drawing.
