Sitting at lunch together, writing notes, holding hands, talking on the phone- ok. Anything else- not so much.

As a kid in the late-50's and 60's I had oodles of little boyfriends all the time. "Crushes" is all they were, and those puppy-love crushes never left the campus. Hell, I can remember a lot of those crushes being hair-pulling and insults, because that was common behavior to get attention. Nowadays it's likely to end up in court!

According to my 5th grader, no one has a boyfriend, but there are many, many crushes between kids. She has a "friend" who is a boy and they text sometimes and there has been some drama, but she assures me that they are not a "couple". It's way too early for that.

When i noticed that this thread was three years old I was worried that there was a pregnancy announcement!
It does happen to 7th graders.
Thankfully, It wasn't an announcement of that type.

You do feel different about that when you are younger like me.

I personally think that if your daughter
Is mature enough and she gives you the type if respect that you want and has good grades then let her date a little distraction won't hurt but if things start to
Go bad then have a little talk with her get some sense into her brain and 5th grade is where all the bf and GDP drama begins until middle school where they learn the meaning. Of. Life
