How young is too young for kids to start the boyfriend & girlfriend stuff? My stepdaughter is 7 and is already concerned with having a boyfriend. There are other kids in her class who are and she wants to be in there with them. It wouldn't concern me as much except last summer she had a friend over and they were playing in her basement playroom, and when I checked on them DSD didn't come up right away and when she did her pants were inside out and she later admitted she took her pants off because they were playing boyfriend and girlfriend. We handled that by just Talking about how we dont take our clothes off with our friends because our bodies are private. We just tell her that she doesn't need to worry about boyfriends yet but she's a follower and there seems to be peer pressure there. Am I worrying over nothing or should I be concerned?
