My step dtr just turned 12- 2 months ago. She has been trying to grow up WAY too fast. My husband and I randomly check her cell phone/ text messages... Today I found a message "Hey Baby" from some boy. When confronted she said it's some boy she met at the mall. She went with and older cousin to the mall while at her mother's house and apparently was unsupervised. So she made up a story about how her cousin gave this boy her phone number...I called the boy and asked how old he was and he told me 13 he also said she told him she was 13 too. I'm so scared that she will be giving her # to the wrong person. Why do kids have to rush things??? I'm afraid she's gonna meet someone who wants her to do things that she's just not ready for!!! I dont think she gets what 13 and 14 year old boys want!
So, my question is...am I wrong for thinking this is totally out of line??? If she's doing this at 12 what will she be doing at 14???
She recently broke up with her (supposed) boyfriend ater 5 months...a week later she has a new boyfriend... How do I keep her from being "One of THOSE girls"????
