Middle School - The Good & The Bad

Posted by   + Show Post

My DD will start 6th grade/middle school in less than 4 weeks.  From moms with experience - how good and bad is the first year of middle school?   I can remember my first day of jr high  - I met one of my best friends while we were waiting to be assigned to homeroom.   There was girl drama, but overall, I dont' remember it being that bad.

Oh girl, nothing gets past them now either. They catch on to sexual comments that used to be over their heads. Can't even say balls without a snicker... And we weren't even talking about that kind!

I wrecked my new car when she told me about the inappropriate-her word, conversation she heard from girls who were a year older... They were 12 when she was 11. They were talking about playing with their mom's special toy. I took the door off my car! The repair place was dying, they felt so bad they repaired it for free! I baked them a bunch of fresh brownies.

Quoting KenneMaw:

One of my friends has a daughter that just finished 7th grade and every day she woudl come home with a new sex or body question.  Yay - can't wait for that!!!  LOL!    It is funny when others are telling me about it, but i dont' think it will be so funny when it is happening to me.   Since i have a girl, I dont' think the DH will want to answer any of those questions.    It is a shame that kids can't hold onto their innocence for a bit longer.
