Dear Perturbed Parent:

I feel you on this one. I’d be uneasy too, but I think the best thing to do is not over react. Play it cool and let her volunteer all the information. At this age it’s really more of a crush, or the newness of discovering boys for the first time. In my opinion, nothing outside of school should go unsupervised anyway. Group outings are always fun and appropriate for this age. She can say the word boyfriend all she wants but you and I both know that this is not what that is. It’s really just the first time she is not grossed out by a boy. Besides, nothing will be going down without you right there lurking in the background. Stay close.
