| | Re: Whats appropriate for 11 year olds?
I have never understood why parents encourage their young kids to have boyfriends and girlfriends before high school (or at all, for that reason).
This girl is in 5th grade. She should be hanging out with girl friends, not one boy. It makes me wonder if this little girl, who ended up in bed with your son, has been sexually abused.
I would encourage your son to focus on his relationships with his male friends. I have two sons and they didn't really get involved with girls until around 16. They much preferred to have fun with their buddies than to follow girls around like a puppy dog.
Your son is young and you have a lot of control over what he can and can't do. Exclusive dating at 11 is just a bad, bad idea.
