Hi Minnie....I would probably start by asking her if she "still" does and was there anything more she wanted to tell you. You want to find out if it was a just "holding hands" boyfriend or "sexually active" boyfriend. HOPEFULLY its just boy girl crush kind of boyfriend. If thats it then there is nothing wrong with that:) If its the other then you will bee needing to make an appointment with your family doc. Hope that helps:)

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Also, dont forget to find out who the boyfriend is. Is he another 13 yr old boy, or are we talking 16, 17? You know that makes a difference.

I second what Mary said. First figure out what type of "boyfriend" she is referring to. But if she is now sexually active, you need to have some serious coversations with her and have her see the doctor.
