Junior high dating tips
I also know that I put some restrictions on my girls watching TV shows that focus too much on dating.Not that I’m going to lock them in their rooms until they are eighteen, I just don’t think they need too much of that when they are ten and under.High schools are full of rumors and drama - don't get sucked into arguments caused by something a friend of a friend might have seen.
