Towards the end of summer, my dd decided to tell 3 of her friends about a serious crush she has on another girl from school. She just started 6th grade and has since told many others about her crush and even told the girl herself about it. I am very shocked by this. I feel I must say, that due to my own ignorance, for which I will never forgive myself, my dd was exposed to alot of crap on the internet this summer and even engaged in some online "chats" with supposed gays. I was monitoring her account to some extent but uncovered a whole bunch of stuff that I am just still in shock about. She now has no access to much of anything on the internet - no email, no youtube, etc and I watch her very carefully. I have talked with her about all of this and have apologized for having allowed this to happen. I have also told her that she is too young to be pursuing any type of relationships. However, I know that she is still fantasizing about this girl and I am really worried about it and what it will do to her reputation. The school counselor is aware of the situation. The problem is, my dd doesn't seem to be bothered at all. She is actually pretty immature in many ways but omg, I don't know what to do about this. Any suggestions would be most helpful.
