I am sitting here catching up on news - finally got the baby to sleep and SD15 is in her room on the phone.
So suddenly I realize I can hear her entire conversation - and it turns out she made a bet w/friends to kiss a boy - and is apparently very proud of how she won this bet. Turns out she has been pursuing quite a few boys around the highschool. I am not surprised by this but wondering what you all would suggest on how to handle this?
The things that bother me about this 1. not liking the shallowness of competing w/other girls over boys that she only wants to rack up counts with 2. obviously would prefer she not be chasing boys at all 3. wondering if she is on the verge of taking any romance farther or not. 4. ugh.
This is not the first time she has stalked boys she had a crush on (started in 6th grade). But it is the first time she has liked so many at once (the joys of a big city school, I guess) and is actively trying to make out with all of them. (so far it sounds like 3).
I will of course discuss it w/DH first before I approach her. (for those of you who dont know my story - bm is pretty much out of the picture, we are custodial and she lives 1000+miles away).
*Oh and last night she told me she only wants a boyfriend so she can get chocolate for valentines day - I did very calmly make a few suggestions about how that is not exactly a good reason to like a boy and she should aim for a nice kid and not worry about presents.
