My 11 year old daughter got caught kissing a boy in school. How would you deal with that?

I remember being her age, I know what it is like. I don't want to over react but at the same time I think she is too young, any suggestions on how to react to this situation?

I'm not looking forward to that with my son, but if you think back. It's realatively innocent compared to other things going on in the schools. I wouldn't freak out about it, because there will be bigger issues later on to use that energy for. Be open to her....and hey maybe take out a book on things you can catch from kissing or something and leave it laying on the table where she can just happen to come across it.

i would talk to her. now is an important time to keep the lines of communication open. as already suggested i would not punish but would tell her it was inappropriate.

My brother got in trouble in grade school for the same thing. im sure that she is embarrased enough. but mostly im sure she did it out of curiosity. i would just have a preview of the birds and the bees convo. I wouldn't punish, but make sure she knows that what she did is not appropiate for her age and for school. Good luck!
