What age is it ok to allow daughter to date?
My daughters friend is 9 years old and already has a boyfriend. She goes to movies, skates, and out to eat with the boy. He is around the same age. The friends mom and I spoke about this because my sister-in-law is doing the same thing and more....we talked about how wrong it was.......she told me that her daughter wasn't allowed to talk on the phone to this boy.....SO I WAS SHOCKED to find out these other things .....I'm guessing she lied to me because we just talked about how wrong this was.......my point is.....am I over reacting??? My daughter doesn't say alot about boys but I'm afraid that hanging out with this other girl may change that. This little girl is also into older guys but they are all on T.V. She does get really upset if my daughter or anyone else says that the T.V. guys are cute. I know that she has a big imagination too. But that is the child in her, ya know. She also began shaving her legs at 8. I still don't let my daughter shave her legs but I have heard about it over and over again, because this child gets to. I don't want it to be this way with the boy thing too. When we all went to the pool together my daughter told me alot of things that worries me too. Like going around the pool saying things like "This is why I'm hot" making movements down her body as if she had "boobs". I did mention to her mom in front of her and she tried to deny it. My daughter is very honest.........I know that she was telling the truth because those type of things bothers her. She also talks about getting boobs and tattoos. That scares me too. Am I over reacting or do I need to get on board with whats "COOL" these days? Thanks.
