My daughter recently started receiving text messages from a boy in her gifted class that she happens to likes. He texted her every morning in my cell phone since she does not have any of her own. The conversations are friendly but lately becoming a bit mellow he tell her babe and I love you. I monitored all the messages and as soon as this happened I confronted my daughter and explained our rules and expectations of her. She asked me if i wanted her to tell him to stop calling her those names. I agreed, but soon discovered she erased some text messages from him calling her babe. I got really mad at her and discontinued the texting for a week. I also texted the kid telling him that my daughter was not allowed to date until she is older and if he wanted to continued the relationship needs to refrain from treating each other as other than friends. In a way I am glad to know she likes boys but I am scared she can get in to a relationship behind my back. Please give me some advice I also have and 11 year old who is watching and sensing everything and don't want to sound permissive. My husband sat down with her and explained everything from a man perspective.
