  • Teach her the facts of life and teach her that any boy who wants to do the wrong things (teach her those too) with her is wrong and will not make the boy like her more. Watch positive movies that inspire a woman to be virtuous, not trampy and a slut. Talking ovenly with her will go a long way and remember your her positive role model.

  • let her watch a video tape or that learning channel show where they show the mom giving birth. that should slow those hormones down. also, sit her down in front of the computer adn show her what herpes, geneital warts, cladyma, and all those other gross diseases look like. and then, you look up aids on the net and let her read about how it slowly kills you and then tell her, sex with the wrong person does this. and also, explain to her about rape. girls can get carried away flirting and find themselves giving off the wrong signal to the kind of guy who won't take no as an answer. she needs to be prepared and informed.

  • Try to talk to her in a non-threatening, non-judging, not embarassing way about relationships. A little at a time & casually is easiest. Let her know she can come to you with questions. Don't dwell on it, just keep an eye on her & if you talk about inappropriate behavior talk realistically about why it is inappropriate.

  • I have a girl who just turned 11. Know where your daughter is at all times. Remember she is still a child. Get her involved in something positive. Especially church activities where there are other kids her age going through the same things, yet it is a more positive environment.

  • Try to have realistic conversations about the boys shes into and why. At this age girls don't have a type typically, but in the next year or two she'll probably have a certain type which is why you should probably discuss the "right" kind of boys that you approve of and that she is going to be able to hang out with. By hang out, obviously I mean with doors wide open, never alone, with chasity belts on. :) Good luck... and have faith in the values you have instilled in your daughter thus far. If all else fails, i'm sure theres a dr. phil book about it.
