It's so unhealthy!!!

My 12 year old daughter is completely obsessed with this kid Justin Bieber.He is a 16 year old singer.If you don't know of him look him up on youtube.When you think of a 12 year old being obsessed with a boy you probably think "She's just 12 how obsessed can she be?" but she is always talking about him whenever she sees him on tv she screams and she says she's always thinking about him like during school.But it's very unhealthy for her to be this obsessed.What can I do?

  • Wait for her to turn 13. He'll be old news by then. The bad news is she'll be obsessed with someone new.

  • He's pretty androgynous IMO,start to worry if she starts drooling over grown men actors/singers!

  • Sounds normal to me. At least he's a celebrity that she doesn't have actual contact with...that could get crazy if she was obsessed with a boy at school.

  • Sounds typical, I wouldn't be concerned in the slightest unless she were obsessed with someone she knew personally.

  • I was obsessed with John Stamos when I was a teen.. REALLY obsessed! I grew out of worshiping famous people after a while. It's just something kids-especially girls- go through.
