My daughter is 11 yrs old and in the 7th grade. She just started a new school and now she's into boys. There are a few boys who are interested in her and she wants to have a boyfriend. I told her she's too young to have a boyfriend and that they should just be friends.I know she doesn't agree with me and she'll probably do it anyway and not tell me. I think she's trying to grow up too fast as we all do at that age. I knew it was just a matter of time before this started happening, but I'm not ready.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

OK, you say no (which I think you should) and she "does it anyway" - what now are the consequences? That is the real question here. I know that I did a few things against my parents wishes when I was a kid and truly weighed whether the consequences were worth it. If you are serious about no, the consequences better match your seriousness or you will lose respect and this will just be the beginning. I also know that when I was a kid this never would have been a question because my folks knew where I was and with whom I was with at all times. It saved me from a lot of dumb choices since my folks were going to be right there, and for that I am grateful. So, how serious are you about her not growing up too fast?

I have a 12 year old daughter. She said all of her friends have hooked up with boys already and have boyfriends already. I would like to know how their parents can allow them to start so young. They have their whole life ahead of them. I told my daughter no way and if I find out that she does have a boyfriend I will punish her. I told her that's why girls are pregnant at the age of 13. Kissing leads to other things.

WHY DO KIDS WANT TO GROW UP SO DAMN FAST. Whatever happened to playing with dolls etc. It's really sad but unfortunately its the times we now live in. I'm 54 now and wouldn't have been seen dead with a boy at the age of 11. Although does she me a Boy Friend as in "relationship" or just as a mate? My Sons had girl mates when they were younger in fact my youngest who has just turned 18 is still best friends with his girl 'friend' although they have never been in a relationship. In fact she's now engaged to another young lad and they all get on just fine.
Maybe if they just hang out with a group of girls and lads. But at the end of the day you're her mum and what you say goes. She has to respect you for that. No doubt she'll kick off but she'll just have to deal with it. I certainly would not be happy about an 11 year old child of mine being in a b/f g/f relationship. Trouble is there is so much peer pressure these days. Maybe she'll soon come to her senses and listen to her WISE OLD MUM (not being rude there darling just all our kids think we're ancient) Good LUck

I think you have the wrong idea about "having a boyfriend, as does my husband. Our oldes tis 12 and has "had boyfriends" since age 6! It is just a social status- passing note, wlaking together and talking- that's it. Dating is something different all together. Dating means spending time ALONE or with a group away from adult supervision. Our daughters are not allowed to DATE until at least 16......
So, yes, an 11 year old can have a boyfriend- it is innocent. Just keep an eye on it.

Despite other people's opinion, remember this rule: if it makes you uncomfortable, there is a reason and you need to draw the line. Your instincts are never wrong!!!!!!

I just had to post here on this one...even though I have done it before. Today, my daughter and her little friend wanted to go to the mall, and meet two other little boys. My first thought is NO WAY....then I thought again. I trust my daughter to conduct herself as a young lady, but I didn't know the boys except for one but that was by reputation only...He is a chick magnet. The girls drool over him so much I am surprised there in't a saliva slick running down the hall for him to slide down. My daughter is absolutely ga ga over this boy. So her daddy and I discussed it.... We know we can't keep her under our thumb or she will rebel,n so how do we help her grow, see that she has fun and still remain in control.You know what?, I gave her a choice, I go or she doesn't. I stayed about 20 feet back and didn't cramp her style. She had fun, got to see the boy she liked and everything was still firmly within my control. My daughter, under my eyes.

I only had three rules...
One , dont even think about ditching me
Two act like young ladies or the day is OVER
three...the boys keep their hands to themselves or I break their arms off at the elbows.

They had a good time..my daughter told me how much she loved me a couple of times we were there...I think I just made some headway.

~Joni~ 1st I have to say that I do not agree w you. I know each family is going to have their own rules, but being that forceful is just going to cause them to rebel!

As a christian mom, I truly want what is best for both of my children. I was allowed to date at 14 & car date at 16, but that did not stop me from having boyfriends starting at the age of 11! I have told my children they can date at these times as well. My daughter who is now 13 (& might I add is already in a D cup)-( she blossomed early, but my husband and I have always been honest with her about how & what little boys are thinking!) has had a boyfriend, but he is the son of family friends, their relationship was strictly hanging out w a parent around close by. They go to different middle schools, have broken up for now and decided mutually that they would try again in high school. They are still friends!! I really do not see the the problem with the "dates" being supervised. If they both know the consequences of rules being broken,& we can talk to our children making sure that they know we are there for them. I pride myself in the fact that both of my teens feel comfortable talking to me, about EVERYTHING!!! I know that they do things that they think I don't know about, but truth is I always know where my children are, who they are with, etc...!!! I know I rebelled against my dad when he said I couldn't date...yeah right! I found ways to see my boyfriends. I was a bad girl to an extent. I didn't find Jesus until I met my husband, we were high school sweethearts. My dad truly liked him, & his parents considered me a part of the family from the get go. We have raised our children under God. I'm very proud of both of my teens!!! Oh by the way both of them (my 15 yr old son, & 13 yr old daughter) have asked for purity rings!

No 11 year old in the world has an adults perspective. That's about as normal as you're going to get.
My daughter and myself at age 11, went out to events, roller skating, whatever, with a group of other kids within a year of our ages. I was bethrothed at the time, but my fiance and my aunt and uncle wanted me to have as normal a life as possible. I wouldn't have been allowed to go out with boys only, but a relatively equal amount of boys and girls would be fine. Kids perfered group dates at that age anyways

I have the same problem, only my 11 year old is going into 6th grade. Its too soon and my girl unfortunately is like her mother and matured way way early. She has several boys interested in her and her hormones are on overdrive. We said no. Just simply because she has the mind of a little girl still and the body of a woman...that will cause no end to conflict for her, hormones will win out every time....and because we don't believe she is ready, nor are any of the boys ....they are simply curious about her. She can be friends...we will consider it again come 7th grade but having a boyfriend means meeting at the locker or he comes over to the house etc. No actual REAL dating in cars with boys till she has shown the maturity for it. we are hoping that comes around 16. But the boy will have to get past her father, her three brothers, uncles and grandpa. God help him.

first i would like to ask why is your daughter 11 and in the 7th grade already?if i assume correctly she has been either skipped or started school early, if this is the case you may have an even bigger problem on your hand. for you see she is in class with 12 and 13 yr old kids and this is the age where yhey start liking each other. i was a coach andi always had little girls around me so because i allowed my 10 yrold to have a boyfriend( after explaining to her what that meant at that age) i got to hear all the stories the kids moms coudnt becuse they were not allowed to have a boyfriend and trust me you much rather have your child be able to come to you with the questions rather than them going to their peers. the world is much much faster than it was for you and they are going to have one anyway

[deleted account]

I can understand how u feel. My son who is 11yrs came home a month ago and told me about all the things they learn about puberty but what he thought was puberty was actually the teacher telling the whole class about what is sex and musterbation and how to get the opporsite sex to notice each other. Handed with so much information it isnt surprising why kids of now days are already interested in each other

Dear Erin, 11 is very young for 7th grade. The average age of a 7th grader is 12 or 13. You should not be surprised that your little baby wants a boyfriend if she is constantly surrounded by older children and media exposure which pushes girls towards sexuality. Watch your daughter. Monitor what she does. Be in her business. Let her know you will find out anything she does. Set clear and consistent limits and stick to your guns. Protect your daughter from the media. No Faceboook, no R rated movies, no music with sexual content etc. etc. Vigilance is what you need to protect your child from unwittingly putting herself in harms way. Remember that predators are counting on you to be lax and your daughter to be precocious. It sounds like you really need to begin a round of discussions with your child on human sexuality, puberty and the like. Best of luck to you protecting your daughter. I am in the same boat with my adopted 10 year old. I remind myself that constant vigilance is the price of freedom. Best of luck to you and your family.

I have a 20 year old son and a 12 year old daughter. My daughter had a 'boyfriend' in 7th grade. They were boyfriend and girlfriend at school only. My daughter did not really have time for him, as she is very busy. Talk to your daughter about boyfriends and what it means to her.

I have a 19 year old daughter, a 15 year old daughter and an 11 year old boy. Both my girls starting "dating" when they were 12. I never considered it actual dating. They saw the boys at school and that was about it. My oldest continued to have the same "boyfriend" though, for several years, and that led to more and more time together. At 15 she ended up pregnant. I regretted letting her start so young, though I'm a very proud grandma of a beautiful 3yr old little girl. My 2nd daughter, on the other hand, is more independent. She's been "dating" since about the same age, but she's not the type to become dependent on the relationship. She's usually the one that "wears the pants" in the relationship, and we like to kid her about that. My little man has just started "dating". Again, they really don't do much together other than school. I've had lots of heart-to-hearts with all 3 of my kids about the consequences of having sex and being in relationships at such a young age. I believe in being very open and honest with my children.

Though my oldest just didn't believe it'd really happen to her, the other 2 have watch what can come from a serious relationship. The adore their niece to death, but also see the mistakes that their sister made and are intent on not going through that themselves. I'm hoping that it will make them think twice about going to far.

In the end, I think it comes down to a lot of things. What kind of relationship do you have with your child? Can you talk about the "tough stuff"? Are you open and willing to honestly discuss sex? Will your child feel comfortable coming to you if they need to get on the pill? Are you prepared to take the risk if a child is created? How mature is your child? It's a lot to think about and each parent/child is different. I don't think there's an easy answer. It's something you'll have to weigh for yourself. Good luck to you.

I agree with you Cyndi. But, I have a 12 yo boy going into the 7th grade. He's had "girlfriends" for a while now. But, they only saw each other at school or birthday parties, etc. I am a single mom and my son and I communication very well. We are very open and he knows what I expect from him. He plays baseball and keeps his grades up - he is after that scholorship also. Lay a good foundation, love them, check up on them, and hang on for the ride.

Wow! I'm probably going to get blasted for this. . but here goes. My daughter is 12 years old and will be in 7th grade this school year. She has a 13 year old boyfriend that is going to the 8th grade. He is allowed to come over and hang out, they go to the mall together, and watch movies together. . .all with a group of friends. My daughter and I are very open and we have and do constantly talk about holding hands, kissing, and sex. The most her and her boyfriend have done is hold hands and that is very occasional. Do I trust that? yes! Her friends are very open with me as well and I know that they have kissed and one has gone even farther. Her father and I have to be able to meet the boy and feel comfortable as well as meeting his parents. I do openly talk to his parents and told them up front what we expect. My feeling is . . .you can like it or leave it and if you don't like it then my daughter won't be seeing your son. I can say that because they live in 2 different towns 15 miles apart. We are doing the driving for them to see each other so anything goes array. . her personal transit is shut down. I feel like if kids are going to have sex, then they are going to do it if they have to sneak behind your back. Do I want mine doing it. . no way! But my daughter is an avid softball player and we travel at least every other weekend for tournaments. We have discussed what can happen if you are having sex. . diseases, pregnancy, emotions, etc. The last thing she wants to do is not be able to get a scholarship to play softball. She has seen it 1st hand in our little town. However, that doesn't stop her from having sex if her and her boyfriend end up alone and are caught up in the moment. I have explained to always have a group of friends with you so that you are less vunerable. Trust me, she has had ample opportunity to kiss boys and her "friends" have even tried to pressure her into doing it. But she is very strong willed and she is waiting for the right boy to give her first kiss to. I don't think our situation is suited for every 7th grade girl. If you are not as open with your child as I am with mine and you really don't know her friends/boyfriend as well as I know hers. Then letting them hang out may not be for your child. However, I would never shut her down from "saying" she has a boyfriend. The more you say "NO" the more they will hide things from you. I will tell my kids "YES" as much as possible so that when I say "NO" they know I mean it and we don't have much of an argument. You can let her have a "boyfriend", but it will be up to you how much of if they will see each other outside of school. Fact of the matter is, if you agree or not, she may decide to have a boyfriend anyways and go have sex behind the bleachers at school. This is what I try to prevent. So we have a VERY open relationship and I encourage you to do the same. The reason I go by this, is I have personally experienced both sides. My sister was 15 years old when she got pregnant by her boyfriend that she was not suppose to be going out with. (she is 5 years older than me). I didn't really have any rules as far as boyfriends and I didn't have a curfew. I was open with my parents and brought my boyfriends home. Although I can't say that we weren't having sex at the ripe ol age of 14. . .I was educated and was lucky not to be in the situation my sister was in. I was a very good kid, very athletic, all the teachers liked me, although I wasn't in the poplular crowd I was friends with everyone, I didn't drink or smoke, and still dont drink or smoke now that I'm 33. I don't want my kids having sex before marriage, but I'm not dumb either. So I feel like if they are educated and open with me then we will have a better chance of not having sex or at least having kids while they are in school. Ultimately, unless I home school them and keep them from doing anything they are going to do what they want to do. . even if they are goind to another 11 year olds birthday party. Trust me, it is very easy for them to sneak off!!

No No No, 11 she should be jumping rope, playing hopscotch, playing jacks or something. This is sad. A boyfriend.

I would say yes but no kissing just hugging and holding hands. so many people around her probably is interested in eachother. but explain to her dont turn into the person that has to have a boyfriend because when i was in school there was this boy that had a new girlfriend every week. in my opinion it will help her in the future when older and wanting to find "the one"because she knows what she wants in a guy. hope this is helpful.

I agree no. wow 11 and in 7th grade. Where I live 11 year olds are in 5th and 6th grades. It will be hard if she is that much younger than most 7th graders for her to accept not having a boyfriend when others are but I think she is much too young

I told mine that she could not have a boyfriend until he shook her Daddy's hand and brought me flowers...lol
All kidding aside, ask her what it means to have a boyfriend and then go from there. Ask her if "dating" means going to movies (I would suggest groups only), or is it just while at school and then decide where your boundries are. It may be that she just wants to fit in with the other kids. 11 seems young to be in 7th grade so in my opinion, yes 11 is to young for a "steady" boyfriend and they will tell you they are just "talking" but 7th grade seems to be on target with wanting to have boyfriends so you are in a strange diacotomy of age vs. social activities. I think I would just have to talk with her, and followup often to see where her head is.

I feel for you, 11year old girl and no doubt getting into practice for the teenage stroppy years ahead. I have a 13 yr old, lucky for me she still has the attitude that boys are a pain so have not yet had to deal with this. However, I know that at some point I will have to, I would go with my gut feeling that even if i felt she was to young and thought she was going to see this boy anyways then I would let her on my terms but without her knowing. remember when you were that age if your parents said go left you would go right. This is just the same, as a mum the thought that goes through all our minds is sex, we don't like to think that our young daughters may be in a sexual relationship and they probably are'nt but we know dating a boy at sometime will lead to sex, maybe not with this boy but at some point it will happen. If you allow her to see this boy then you can invite him into your home, let him join in with things you do with your daughter and at the same time keep an eye on the situation. If you forbid her to see him, like you say she probably will anyways and sneak about behind your back which will just worry you more and theres also the possibility that at 11 the idea of having a boyfriend is a novelty cos her friends may have one, she cud be going down a path were she may get hurt and again no mother wants to see there daughter heartbroken at any age. its a tough one to know whats best to do but hope this has helps, Iet me know as i may need some help in the future with this one.

My Daughter has had the same on off boyfriend for over a year.. i have discussed with her that she is far to young to worry about boys and persuaded her to think of him as a best friend rather than a boyfriend. I have noticed immense pressure from her peers at school.. i took her, some friends and her "Best Friend" to the cinema for a birthday treat and whilst my back was turned her friends were chanting "Kiss him, kiss him, kiss him".. its very troubling that children as young as ten know as much about the birds and the bees as they do.. they are no longer as innocent as we might have been at that age.

In my experience i feel it is better for them to do it in front of me than behind my back.. i do this by inviting her boyfriend round for dinner or taking the dogs for a walk to the park when they arrange to meet up.. I spoke to his mother and she does the same with my daughter. It seems to work well for everyone.

Well it's not like she gonna go to mall or go on actually date him. It just means they'll hang out. Plus boyfriend is just a label. Chances are they won't be alone for most of the time. Idd say yes.

I feel the same. My ten year old is in 4th grade and I have the same problem. She likes a boy and he likes her. They text and occasionally talk on the phone. He has invited her over but I refuse to let her go because I don't know the parents and am not comfortable with my little girl going to a little boy's house. She says they are just friends but he sent her a text telling her she was his girlfriend and he missed her when he was recently out of town. My daughter immediately showed me the message which I didn't make a big deal about but they have not yet been allowed to hang out outside of school and if they are I think we would be there along with his parents. I just feel they are to young. Friends are fine but nothing more. Thankfully mine still tells me kissing is gross. I just am not sure if I believe her. Her best friend is the exact opposite and thinks all boys are disgusting. I think it just depends on the child. From what I gather boy/girl friend relationships at this age are just at school.

Yes Jen you are so right, that is the way kids are. However, parents are not placed on this earth to be "yes" people. It is the hardest job in the universe, being a parent. We have to discern where we place those bounderies. Yes there will be protests but kids can and must learn to respect that.

Hmmm - and my 11 yr. old son wants to drive our car. A gentle reminder: We are parents and not our kids 'best buddy'. A difficult part of our job is deciphering what our kids really want. Is it that she wants a boyfriend; as we know it to mean, or is it that she wants to socially fit in with a group, by having one; because 'everyone else is doing it', or would she be curious to know how boys think about things, as up until now, boys have been alien beings of sorts. I would suggest to have a few good conversations about this. Avoid saying directly that she's too young, as that concept is not one kids understand. Probably also, expand her interests to occupy her free time; an activity that is co-ed. If, for example she interested in art/drawing. Enroll her in a class that is co-ed. Or, a volunteer community project that is co-ed. Together, try an activity that is completely new. These venues would expose her to interacting with boys, enabling her to return to school to say she has 'friends that are boys' and also showing her that the world out there is bigger than she thinks and it'll wait for her discovery of it ... on her own terms. :)

That should be off limits especially when you have children at a young age becoming parents. I know this is the age when the interest in boys starts but talking to her can help sort out some things. If you haven't had the "talk" yet now would be a good time.



My daughter is 10 yrs old and I ask her questions all the time during our mommy and me discussions. I also purchased a book for her to read about her body changes and puberty. The librarian in my neighboorhood showed me some new books by American Girl that touches on many subjects for young girls. This may be an icebreaker to help with discussing why at this time having a boyfriend would not be a good idea.



I explained to my daughter she can have friends that are boys but not a boyfriend until she is old enough to understand all of that. They way we raise our children are never the same as another parent. Unfortunately when parents are not involved with their children they tend to experiment or are victims of peer pressure.

i thinl that is absolutely okay because my daughter (in 7th grade) has a boyfriend and all they do is hang out and sit together durring lunch at school. the relationships at this age are just innocent little things that honestly dont last long. just make sure she is comfortable talking to u about it and knows that no matter what u r there.

Since this post is from last year, I thought I'd share my two cents for others posting: "Boyfriend" to you could mean something different to your daughter. Talk about what "boyfriend" means to her. Wouldn't you be pleasantly surprised if she answered "a boy who's my friend?" :) Then, I feel it's possible to come to a compromise. At whatever age they're at, discuss what would be appropriate to do with a boy and what wouldn't be.

I have an 11 year old 5th grade daughter. She seems to be one of the less mature 5th graders, but ALL her little girlfriends talk about is boys...its driving me crazy. She loves to text her friends from my phone, asking them "who are you dating today" REALLY!?! so we just talk about how its ok to have a male friend, or two, but you are WAY too young to date. Even my almost 17 year old daughter doesn't feel the need for a boyfriend!!

Is she clear about the difference between a boy that is a friend and a "boyfriend"? Boyfriends are the males we have intimate relationships with and if that is not her intentions why does she need a "boyfriend" at this age? Is she emotionally mature enough to have a grown up man/woman relationship? If not, I would not encourage the relationship because a broken heart at this age can have an everlasting impact on other aspects of her life.

My daughter is ten and also has a boyfriend. She tells me they are dating. I told her no you are not. Her response was its a status thing in school to have a boyfriend. They are really just great friends. He comes from a nice family. Its innocent. We have had him over to our house for a movie and vice versia. He has bought her two necklaces and my daughter thinks that is cute. If you are totally against the idea they will go behind your back. I rather have great communication between my daughter and myself and she feels comfortable talking to me and my husband. Kids are growing up way too fast.

My daughter is 9, I think 11 is too young for a child to even think in terms of boyfriend. I taught 7th grade, my last year in the classroom I had an infant and three girls in my class room had toddlers... in the seventh grade. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you saying no.

Hi Erin,

I am a mom of an 11 year old. I would NEVER allow her to have a boyfriend at this age . I want a million dollars but it looks like I don't have it. I believe you can have open and honest conversations to an extent. I have told my daughter that she under no circumstances can she have a boyfriend. I told her about the birds and the bees to her understanding. Such as her body parts and the boy's body parts and generally how children are conceived but again it was very general. I was honest and open and I let her come to me. It is ok for you to say no you cannot date because.... and she will respect it. You don't have to indulge everything for your child to grow up happy and self assured. Let her know that it is not bad for her to have these feelings it just shows she is growing up and let her know you felt the same or others do , but as her mom is our responsibility to be informative with information and to be honest. Ask her what she thinks is involved with relationships with boys. If she does not answer it right then you can let her know she is not ready because she needs to know what a relationship is all about. Don't be a drill seargent but give her a reason to think about the situation on her terms and then she will respect your decision about not dating so young. I hope this helps.

As long as things are supervised, I say let her test the waters. The more open you are, the more she's going to tell you, and in the end isn't that what every parent really wants? To know what's going on with their kid? If you forbid it, and make her feel like it's something bad, she's going to shut down and not talk to you, and you're right, she'll probably do it anyway. The worst thing is going to be getting a call from a boys parents who love you're daughter and think she's so sweet, and you have no idea who their kid is!

HELL NO !!! The kids don't realise the concept of having a boyfriend/girlfriend...I'm sorry to say some Adults cannot handle relationships where still an 11year old kid. Yes the kids of today are growing very fast and very quickly.She has her whole schooling still to see to and its been proven that no child can do 2 things at one time..Your childs focus should be on her school work and not to worry about relationships.Her future is more important than trying to keep a boyfriend. Her time will come and she needs to understand that, yes you will disagree , and believe you me they will go against with what you say and still do what they think its best..At the age of 11yrs to be in a relationship where kissing is involved is a definate NO for me, because one thing leads to the next and before you know it they would want to experiment what ADULTS do best..So please try and make her understand her days will come to have a boyfriend.
