My DD has a boyfriend -she's 12 he's 11, last week it got back to me that they'd kissed at the school dance then yesterday I saw them walking home holding hands. Today there he was with his arm thrown over her shoulder like an 18yr old ( and me with the car pulled over and me yelling like a banshee! ) & on her facebook a/c she says she is 'in a relationship' ( her dads permission to join not mine!) One Mom has told her daughter to stay away from my daughter as she is a bad influence. So this has all come to light this week. I don't like the "boyfriend" thing, I think she is too young to start the whole dating boyfriend rubbish, I have banned her from facebook & MSN, spoken to the school principal& told her to tell this boy that she isn't allowed to be boyfriend/girlfriend. My friend says I'm over reacting, what does everyone else think - would you let your 12 yr old declare she has a boyfriend or is in a relationship & why?Answer Question

"So I think I would keep the yelling like a “banshee” to a minimum". - yep point taken! not my proudest moment I was just so .... Blllaaaghhhhhhh. Poor boyfriend turned green and I thought was gonna vomit. "Better put her on some type of birth controll before you become a grandma". - Really, really ???? you know , I think that this comment sums up why I am concerned. A Mom assumes a kid needs to be on birth control or she will be pregnant in a nanosecond because she holds hands with a kid ---- so over reaction to some, and yet I should have her on birth control to someone else. I just want her to know that having a boyfriend isn't everything, that being a good kid, having some friends, and fun is just as important.

" I just want her to know that having a boyfriend isn't everything, that being a good kid, having some friends, and fun is just as important" So well said! But I am sure that you have been doing that this whole time. I bet she is a great level headed girl and as far as becoming a Grandma I would not worry about that at all! Please know one got preggo from holding hands even if it was under a tree LOL!
Also try not to listen to other Mom's most Mom's don't monitor their children as well as you are doing and that is why they become prego.
BTW I bet the look on that boys face was priceless. It will give you and hubby something to remember and laugh about when she is away in college. Good Luck.
