How to get a girlfriend in 4th or 5th grade

Site Logo

Am I the only parent that has a problem with this?! My dd dear daughter is in the 4th grade and has never mentioned a bf, but a friend of hers claims to have a bf. I ask dd dear daughter about it and she has nothing to say - like she has no idea. I am worried she may have one, but isn't telling because she knows I wouldn't approve. I know we did when I was a kid, and my older siblings all mid40s say they did too!

How to Get a Girlfriend in Middle School

I loved recess the most—like most of my students. I loved it because the kids would get out their pent-up energy. It was also the time they would talk.

And by talk, I mean share. New words were learned and stories were told. Which is obviously kissing in Paris. Because kids. There is education and then there is education. We need to talk to our kids about things kids are talking about. Playgrounds have moved way beyond our memories of it…like when we heard you could be pregnant by kissing in your bathing suit. Kids are exposed to so much more with apps and iphones, unlimited freedom and our sex-crazed culture.

And start by listening. When we are quiet, waiting for them to talk, often they do. He was shocked and slightly offended. Thanks, anyway! At all. She said she had seen it going on, but the school was very strict to stop it.

If your child is in public or even private school—or frankly, around other kids their age, we need to begin these conversations. We need to be talking with our kids about it and praying for good, Godly friends to be a part of their lives.

My son never cared about what he wore to elementary. The first day of the 6th grade changed that. Modesty is a thing, too. This is the season where our kids often clam up and stop telling us everything.

We list the rules, we nag, we remind, we speak before we listen. They are waiting for you to, whether they know it or not. But they still have to be broached. I agree. Here is a funny. Last summer my 19 year old thought it just wonderful that two sets of friends got married…kids in their early twenties.

Now both sets of newlyweds are having babies. But the bottom line is they are struggling. She has just turned twenty and recently came to me saying that she now sees our rationale for waiting —waiting to date, waiting to become serious, waiting to become comfortable in her own skin—waiting and working on her relationship with God.

For a girl who was adamant that dating early is not a bad thing, she has changed her tune. It is becoming quite counter cultural to want kids to hang out in groups of guys and girls so they can begin to understand the opposite sex in general —not specifics.

The 10 year old, however…. It is vital to keep the door of communication open. These are still important conversations. Thank you so much for this excellent post! I am amazed how much our culture has changed just since I was in school! Blessings, Carrie. It is innocent enough right now but I am beside myself. We have 2 issues here. The right girl will make him chase her…. I can only hope they believe me. The bible is full of praise for take-charge women who defied gender roles like that.

She is pursuing that approval. She is setting herself up for rejection and disappointment. I am the mother of three adult daughters, I want them to be strong for themselves and in their faith. I commend you for being a teacher that cares, we need more of those. The only thing my 5th grade son needs to be chasing is a ball.

I did all of these things and more Christian school, purity retreats, open dialogue, no dating with my 15 year old girl. Unfortunately, she still made the choice to engage in sexual activities with boys. I am just trying to love her and remember that she has to live with consequences of her actions. Hardest time in my life right now.

No condemnation, just love and prayers for healing. These are great. Thank you for the encouragement to have the conversations that matter with our kids. Amen, Kristen! I just had this exact convo with my workout partner this morning! Yesterday at church the sermon was on marriage and sexuality. They put up great big signs all over stating the sermon was PG And really, if the pastor had apologized one more time for having to discuss it…..

Amen to all of this!! One is 22 , graduated college and married now, middle child is a Junior in college, and my youngest just turned 17! I was able to stay home with my kids for 11 years until our youngest started K. I went to all of their school activities, unless they were at the same time, and then my husband or my parents would split up. I loved being so close to my kids! I think now days, you have to stay involved with your kids or you will lose them. Your blog resonates with me in many ways…and I love reading your posts.

I agree whole-heartedly that our kids want to talk. As a teacher of middle school kids, I see the complex social learning and maze-running that my students go through every day. The drama, the worries, the sometimes scary events and decisions they have to make. They are fascinated with each other. And when the hormones hit, any adult would be hard-pressed to stop them.

I so appreciate that you have addressed this. While I agree with a lot in this article. I have a small issue with the face that as long as our children are around godly people they will automatically be ok. I just have to say that even if we do not attend a religious gathering once a week does not mean our children are automatically doomed!

I challenge you to think more deeply about what is at stake here. Teach your son to behave in a gentlemanly manner— presuming to label young women as aggressive only justifies young men to act inappropriately.

Sorry, but there are girls out there who are aggressively chasing boys. The daughter of a dear friend, who is 11, is wreaking havoc stealing the ball while boys play, stealing their hat, chasing them, hanging around their desks, starting splash fights in the pool. There is a difference between blaming the victim, which is always wrong, and acknowledging that some behavior is disrespectful, both to the target and to oneself.

A long, long time ago, I taught one year of first grade. It kicked my butt. It was hard and I realized not everyone who likes kids should be a teacher.

This is a prime example of issues that should be discussed at home, and not in the schools. Great post. I thought your kids were in public school? Did I misread? Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Footer Search Search this website.

While I have memories of my now year-old self being years old, I have learned that the year-old kids of today are not the sort that I or any generation preceding mine were. I can say this with a considerable amount of confidence and insight given that I am raising a year-old daughter who is in fifth grade. The discussion about the puberty culprit is one for another day, not the one being had here, right now. We all know kids sometimes do things that they have no business doing; as a former teen mom, I can strongly attest to this.

Starting middle school is an exciting new adventure. You'll make new friends and meet a lot of girls.

Girls at this age can be different than other girls in private school or who are home-schooled. Public school girls are sometimes more dramatic and lack self-confidence in looks and personality. Here are a few tips to get these girls to like you.

How to enjoy nature from home

Friendship is an important part of kids' development. Having friends helps them be independent beyond the family and prepares them for the mutual, trusting relationships we hope they'll establish as adults. Members of the clique usually follow the leader's rules, whether it's wearing particular clothes or doing certain activities. Kids in cliques often worry about whether they'll still be popular or whether they'll be dropped for doing or saying the wrong thing or for not dressing in a certain way.
