  • I haven't been in this situation as a parent...but I would probably ask her why she likes him just to know what is going on in her head. See who this guy is and what he is like. Then if I think it's ok tell her that she should just start being friends with him. There really is no way to know if someone likes you until you ask or they tell you. so anyway I would basically just encourage her to be friends with him and maybe have "the talk" and let her know what guys want from girls so she is less likely to get pressured into doing things if she is already interested in boys.

  • we sat down for like an hour last night and she said that it is her best friend for two years. So she knows all about him and she has already had the talk.

  • Kids this age are big on notes, tell her to write him a note asking him how he feels about her. My dd, is 13 and she tells me all the time that so and so wrote so and so a note and asked them to "go with them"....they seem to switch bf/gf alot, like every week!
