According to my 11 year old, just about everyone her age and even younger has boyfriends/girlfriends. I asked her what it means to kids her age and she said hanging out, talking on the phone, texting and sometimes holding hands. She doesn't have a boyfriend but there is a boy that lives near her grandparents (one town away) that she wants to be her "boyfriend". I am shocked and really don't know what to think. Are kids really having bf/gf's at this age? When I was a kid that didn't really start until about 13.
