My husband and I said no, explaining that we believe 13 is too young to be going on dates.
We are now hated - enduring deaths stares and silence.
She has always seemed to be more of a tomboy and would rather hang around boys, which still happens at school, but in listening to their conversations that's all they are- friends.
I believe some kids in school claim that she has a boyfriend, but she has never said that and actually denies it when questions arise.
:)T.: Make a compromise - if they want to go to a movie - JOIN THEM!! If you do this, she will feel like she has something fun to do with him, and you hold the cards. Let her give you death stares all she wants - 13 is too young to date. I really don't care if this is a "different time." I'm doing the same for my daughters.
