My daughters are 11 and 12. I have seen that girls start to have boyfriends (kissing, etc..) in 6th grade. Some parents don't mind and I'm not one to tell anyone how to raise their kids. But DH, myself and girls god parents sat down and agrred not to let girls date or give their number out to boys til the 11 grade. Te reason being that we want them to put all their energy and mind into studying, instead of the drama that comes with dating. I want my girls to be successful. One wants to be a Forensic DNA Scientist and the other a Computer Scientist. Their dad dropped out in 9th grade. I dropped out in 11 grade. then in 2004 I got my GED. God mother a 3rd grade teacher and God father disabled. The reason for me to want it this way is to stop the cycle of drop outs. It's time for some successful people in our family and I don't want unnecassary distractrions in their life. It's aleady hard enough being a preteen, then a teenager who has to find themselves. Are we wrong for wanting the best for them even if it we set rules as them not being able to date til 11 grade or giving boys their number til then as well. What do you think?
