Advice Needed: My daughter is 11 and insistent on having a boyfriend...

Posted by   + Show Post

My daughter is 11, and insistant on having a boyfriend. She hides it from us, lies, and goes behind our backs. I have tried everything to keep her from being around boys. She doesn't go anywhere without me or another family member, she doesn't have a phone, internet usage is supervised etc. The only way she is contacting boys is at school. I feel bad that she is on "lock down" and I want things to be better for her, but I can't trust her.  I've thought about allowing her to have a boyfriend and just controlling the situation as far as when and where they see eachother or talk.  I feel that is the only way I will remain in control and in the loop.  But of course my husband is not on board with that at all.  We found out the hard way that there is a huge problem with kids her age regarding pornography and messing around physically and this whole thing scares me, if she's hiding one thing from me, she'll hide other things that are way more serious.  Help!

What does she consider to be a boyfriend? If they only see each other in school and she doesn't have phone or internet access and is always with a family member, how is this a problem? Did I miss something here?
