9th grader dating a 7th grader dating older men problems
Her dad worked in law so she was “risk averse”…)Technically it’s no different that a HS Senior dating.
HS Junior, EXCEPT for distribution of psychological and sexual development in the 12–14 age groups represented in grades 8 and 9.
I don't think that dating at 13 is as innocent as you think.
Atleast as soon as hormones hit the boy it wont be.
She was thrilled holding hands but when he wanted to kiss she got cold feet (not open mouth thank God, but still!
) So she decided to break up with him and it was very hard.
I had my first boyfriend/kiss at about the same age, and it was all very sweet until the boy tried to put his tongue down my throat, GROSS!!!
My friend agreed that was good, but she still doesn't think it's appropriate for kids this age to have these experiences (and I respect her opinion.) So just curious what you all think?
When I was 13, I was busy hanging out with my girl friends to even think about boys yet i dont believe we've gone back in time and kids have gotten more innocent but I can tell you that when I was 13 I was the only girl in the neighborhood who had never "french kissed" anyone.
In fact the day I kissed someone was because around 20 kids decided I waited to long (I was then 14) so they decided I was going to kiss one of them. kissing, and when I hit 15 I was doing more than kissing too.
There is a likely possibility for a psychologically/sexually more developed 9th grade boy, dating a psychologically/sexually less developed 8th grade girl, to do some lasting emotional and certainly physical harm if the relationship becomes sexual.
Since our 6th graders are like 3 feet tall with 8th graders being between 5 and 6 feet.
