My daughter is also 10 years of age she went through pubity about a year ago and has become obsessive with boys, beyond belief obsessive to the point where i'm worried for the boys she develops crushes on because she becomes stalkerish, I don't have a clue what to do or address this issue as she is my oldest child and dont have friends with girls of her age.

It is normal to be interested in boys but a 7th grader is too old.  I would be worried about that, especially if you daughter is pre puberity and he has gone through puberty,

I know where you are coming from I also have a 10 yr old daughter and thought this stage was years away but here it is. I would also like to know how best to tackle this.

Ever since I can remember I have been boy crazy...I think that 10 is a totally normal age to start liking boys. Do you know the boy she is talking to on the computer? I would be more worried about internet chat rooms. Just keep her informed about what boys and girls are supposed to be doing now. Just innocent stuff-holding hands. Good luck!

I think it is normal. I have a soon to be twelve year old boy and he cannot stop with the texting and e-mails. I had to take away his cell phone as well. I thought it was to soon for him to be interested in girls, but apparantly I was wrong. I share your concerns. Be careful. Children these days aren't like we use to be. I remember at 12 I was still playin with barbie.

well as long as i can remember i always thought about boys and relationships with them. i would say when i was 10 i started noticing boys and having little crushes on them. so i think it's normal.

As scary as it sounds, I think it is normal! Kids these days are growing up faster than ever. My husband works for our school district and you should hear what some of the littlest kids say! I have heard also of schools teaching sex-education to 3rd and 4th graders. So I would say just make sure you stay in touch with her feelings in order to ensure her mind is going in the right directions! Good luck!

I have a boy so I can only speak from observation and my youth...YES this is normal. I think they are trying to grow up an that's part of it, but part of it is natural. There was a time she'd be nearly ready to be married off at age 12! I do volunteer work with middle schoolers and all of the girls are totally boy crazy! Good Luck...
