Quoting c_turtle21:Last year when my daughter was in 5th grade she got asked "out". Her response..she told the boy that she as too young to date and really didnt want to anyway. SO while I personally think its too young we have parents around here that are ok with it all. I consider myself lucky that my daughter is incredibly athletic and competative and still considers boys competition in soccer. Also ask him what he thinks it means to have a "girlfriend" you may come to find that you and he are not on the same wavelength. What does he consider a date...going to the movies with a group of friends....or something else?
Quoting uniq:i would love to do that, but the girls are litterality throwing themselves on him right now, it's sickning.

You HAVE had the "talk" with him already, haven't you? If not, and all of this is going on, then it's time. I don't get girls these days...I see them at my son's middle school and they scare me!
Quoting c_turtle21:My daughter came home all the time last year with little trinkets like cheap jewelry and candy...occasionally a stuffed animal. I wont let my daughter date at all..I guess different kids mature at different rates. Maybe you should call this girls parents and see where they stand. Maybe a compromise...how bout a movie at the house...that he rents ...pops popcorn something like that if he is really determined to date. Aly has boys come to the house and ask if she can play outside...to me thats fine...because she still considers them just friends.
