Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?
Dealing with puppy love, first kisses and questions about boyfriends or girlfriends? Here’s help. Lisa Kadane February 13, One night last spring, as I was tucking my seven-year-old daughter in at bedtime, she started telling me about a boy in her class who liked her. How do you feel about him?

I think its totaly fine im a 7th grader and my boyfriend is a 5th grader! Too much difference in maturity. You are asking if someone in HS should date someone in Elementary. They could if they wanted to. But the seventh grader might be more mature and might expect more from the relationship. If there is a three year age difference it shouldn’t be that bad.
A lot of adults are separated by a few years. But if an 8th grader should date a 5th grader keep things appropriate. NO SEX!!! It’s a very big stretch from 5th grade to 7th grade. Generally, a 5th grader is too young to date at all. It would be difficult to get a 7th grader to ask a 5th grader out. It Really depends on your maturity level.
The Facts About Sexual Activity in Middle School
This article was updated April 26, , but was originally published Feb. Read an updated feature story with information on how social media is affecting teen dating here. Perhaps the thought of all those sweet young couples slow dancing under paper streamers coaxes a nostalgic sigh or two. Ah, reality.
My year-old daughter is maturing very fast. She’s told me that she likes guys at school, but I’m not sure if I should let her date. Although your daughter may look years older than her age, her emotional intelligence, reasoning, and judgment have a long way to go to catch up to her body. In essence, she may be a girl with the body of an older teen, but her emotional and intellectual makeup remains that of an year-old.
Older boys often pursue girls who mature earlier physically and these girls are often flattered and excited by this attention for example, the freshman girl who is romanced by the senior boy. Carleton Kendrick has been in private practice as a family therapist and has worked as a consultant for more than 20 years.
He has conducted parenting seminars on topics ranging from how to discipline toddlers to how to stay connected with teenagers. Advice given here is not intended to provide a basis for action in particular circumstances without consideration by a competent professional. Our expert believes that year-olds are far too young to engage in dating behaviors.
Many girls in your daughter’s generation are maturing physically at a more rapid pace than those in previous generations. For a girl who has physically matured at an early age, your daughter may possibly be dealing with some surging hormones and the beginnings of her body’s sexual awakening. However, there is a major difference at her age between liking boys and dating them. I believe that year-olds are far too young to engage in dating behaviors.
Although it’s usually true that girls do mature socially earlier than boys do, we are not talking here about socialization skills — we are talking about year-olds dating.

When I was four, I had a boyfriend. He lived a few doors away and we played doctors and nurses. He was of course just a friend , who happened to be a boy. I suppose some adult once made what they thought was an amusing comment about him being my boyfriend. I was sad to lose him as a friend when his family moved away but for the next few years, boys were another species who were noisy and smelly; a common reaction from most children. But there are children in primary schools who send Valentine’s Day cards and believe they are ready to have some kind of relationship, sometimes encouraged by their peers.
Victoria has a son aged nine. Other children have tried to say they are girlfriend and boyfriend but they are not. It’s a shame that a lovely platonic friendship needs to be labelled that way.
How to handle your child’s first crush
Children need friends. Friends are a source of fun and companionship. Building a fort in the backyard or the basement is far more fun if you have a friend to build it with. Through their friendships, children learn about leading and following, arguing and making up, sharing and feeling empathy.
I kid you not! Last year I had students at the end of the year who said they were boyfriend/girlfriend. This year it has started much sooner. Today.
Some forums can only be seen by registered members. Ever heard of this? My 11 yo apparently has a “boyfriend” not sure if it’s an actual boyfriend or just they both like each other and I’m really not sure what to think of it.. I read her AIM profile and it says stuff along the lines of ”Oh “George”, we are going to be forever”. Most of her friend’s profiles also say things along those lines. Where should I draw the lines on this?
My husband and I talked about it and she definatley will not be allowed to exclusivley date.. The boy is in her class at school and they’ve known each other since kindergarden, I am friendly with his mom, and the few times I’ve talked to him he’s seemed like a pretty nice kid.. I also don’t want her heart to be broken if this boy starts to like someone else. Any advice would be appreciated.
I am going through this with my 3rd grader. Have you asked her what exactly a “boyfriend” is?

THE flirtatious glances and giggling whispers that punctuate lunchroom chatter at the Ardsley Middle School would be unremarkable for seventh- and eighth-grade students practicing dating skills. What is remarkable is that the exchanges are taking place between and year-old fifth graders, many arranging dates for a Saturday night movie, discussing plans for boy-girl parties or gossiping about who is pairing off with whom. For parents reluctant to allow their children to date unchaperoned at 14, such social precocity in the early teen-age set is disconcerting.
For youngsters who would prefer pastimes like board games or Roller Blading, the pressure to conform with more socially advanced peers can be daunting. And for teachers and guidance counselors who observe the effects of such behavior in the classroom, the lunchroom and the halls, the situation can be disturbing. Now it’s pervasive.
