Middle school dating too young
Middle schoolers who date don't usually kiss and all that.
G., I recently read your article warning parents about the perils of young teens and dating. When I was pregnant I prayed to have a popular child who would be happy and be sought out by the opposite sex. Can you explain some more what you have against young teens dating?
This is especially true given that middle school boys are now watching porn from the time they are 11 or 12. However, I'm getting the sense that dating in middle school doesn't always mean "dating." Our daughter is in the 7th grade.
When she says people are dating, it means something very different than when we were young.
Could someone explain to me exactly what business a child has dating while in school?
Why is this being promoted as the new 'normal' and why is it being touted as a desirable activity for them? First, second and third..'dating' or 'going steady'. I don't care how good looking anyone is as a kid, dating can wait until they graduate. As to what business a child has dating in school: school is for way more than learning.
I am not sure how you and your daughter are defining dating. She is very pretty and popular and all of the boys like her. I was a wallflower with acne and sat home while the other kids went out.A Confused Mother Dear Mother, First, let me say that we have to be very careful about wishing for popularity for our kids.We started out as friends, but I took the next move and asked him out. I think we are very serious even though I am in sixth grade (first year of middle school).I have seen some very disappointing things on articles of my situation.
