Matt is one of her best friends, an adorable ten year old with whom she plays Minecraft online.“Oh,” I said, not at all sure how I felt about my baby girl having a boyfriend. ”“Well, he’s my really good friend anyway, so it’s almost like he’s my boyfriend, so I said yes.”“Did you, um...

The email was entitled ‘A Sensitive Matter’, and though the subject line was cryptic, I knew exactly what it referred to.
My 11 year old daughter has a "boyfriend", what should I do?
Every parent must make decisions about dating and if your fifth grade daughter tells you she has a boyfriend, you'll have to make some decisions sooner rather than later.
My daughter had told me of a recent talk they’d had at school, and I had been waiting for the follow up email.
The talk wasn’t on puberty – they'd had that talk the previous year. Over the past couple of months, boys and girls in the year have started asking each other ‘out’.
Usually (especially for boys) dating results in heartache.
I don't wanna be overprotective, but I also in NO means want to seem as though I am encouraging sexual activity.....
Anyone out there already been or currently going through this??
I have an 11 year old boy who's very interested in girls.
I have always been as open & honest with him in regards to anything he has ever wanted to ask.
