My DS told me he had to go see the principal because his teacher said no more dating. I found that odd because I remember those years and my other kids went thru it too. Its "going together" not really dating.
I sent a note to the teacher because I wasnt sure what was going on. I drilled my DS if this girl was in is class "no", did he hold her hand or kiss on her? He said "eww No!" But they are going together. Usually harmless but I didnt understand why he would have to talk to the principal. The teacher sent me a email saying dating is innapropriate and they will be talking to numerous kids to put ends to it since it is disrupting them to learn.
I honestly dont know how to respond to this.. I guess these young crushes seem innocent to me and if the kids are in a seperate class how can it be effecting their learning? My son does not date, doesnt talk to this girl on the phone.. I kinda think its being blown out of proportion.
