Hi, my 12 ur old daughter started her period a few months ago and is now in 7th grade. Her dad recently checked her text messages as he does every once n a while to make sure everything is OK with all the social media and craziness out there. Anyway, he showed me a conversation she was having with a boy at school, the boy said to her I should have kissed you that day, you are so pretty. She replied with oh why didn't you? The convo went on and he said he will the next time he see's her and she agreed to it. She hasn't mentioned anything and I doubt she will. I try to talk to her about boys and maturity, sex etc. She just sits quietly mostly, I'm sure its awkward. Tomorrow her dad and I plan to talk to her about the text we saw and try to give her advice. Now her dad is a tough guy/ strict and I'm more laid back and want to treat her with respect. I'm hoping it doesn't go sour when we have the convo with her. Any advice? We were also planning tostart telling her to turn her phone into us each night at 8 pm to avoid any late night texting. I should have done this when I gave her a phone. And I'm sure my husband will tell her no kissing! But obviously we can't stop her in reality.
