Boy crazy?
Fri, 06-21-2013 - 2:02pm

I posted this on the gradeschoolers board but figured this would good be a good place to ask too.

During my DD's slumber party, I was suprised at how many of the girls seemd "boy crazy"- lots of talk about who was the cutest in their class, cute guys on TV, etc. I've maybe heard my daughter talk about a boy being cute maybe a few times but certainly not as often as some of these girls were. Is it normal for girls this young (9-11 age range) to be so boy crazy? I'm not ready for all that yet!

Yep this is perfectly normal.....especially for a group of girls!!  It may seem young, but this is when it happens.  They can talk about the cute boys in a safe environment and compare notes with their friends.  No dating or anything official, but it does happen.  Welcome to our group an thanks for posting your question!  Keep asking those questions!

All it takes is one of the girls to start and then they all chime in! It is just the group thing, they are just trying to be more like older girls.
