So, Im in a bit of a pickle and I will take any thoughts/advice I can get! Here's the story.
This afternoon, I was walking with a friend to pick my kids up from school, its a good mile walk altogether. And on the way back, we picked up her nephews so they would be worn out as well Lol And this boy, whom is the same age as my daughter kept asking her to come walk by him. And I knew that she had liked him a little bit, because she kept telling him "No, Im walking with my mom" and kept going..
When we got back home, she instantly came in to do her homework. Because the rule is that she is not allowed to play outside until all homework/chores are completed. So he followed her inside, because she needed the dictionary and I don't have one. So I pulled up the internet and put her on dictionary.com LOL Im ghetto I know..
He says "I can help you" and I am sitting on my porch just conversating with my friend, and I peek in every now and then to check on them.
After homework, they came outside to play with the other kids ( I had 7 kids here today) and shortly after they leave. When they are gone my daughter informs me that she didn't do her homework, HE did. SAY WHAT? Noooo my child. I nipped that in the butt. It's ok to have HELP with our homework, but its not ok to have boys do our homework LOL
Then she says, "Will you ask "insert name here" if him and I can be study buddies?"
My stomach hit the floor... LOL I couldn't believe that my daughter was bold enough to ask a boy this question, like EVER.
Instantly, my mind fast-forwarded to when she is 16, dating boys.
I called EVERYONE I knew and told them the story LOL I was in awww at my 10 year old daughter.. After all she is 10, not 16.
My mother says, I need to nip it in the butt before she thinks it is ok to ask any boy she wants to be "study buddies" and Im said, "Mom, she's 10 what is the worst that could happen?!" LOL
She is 10 years old and wants a study buddy that she also has a crush on, and he also has this same little crush on her. I don't see the harm in it, as long as there is adult supervision. They are only 10 after all.
If it were your daughter, would you let it happen?
