2. Watch your mouth boy!
Don’t go”WTF!” or “who the hell is this kid? “. Ask questions like a concern parent not like a prosecutor trying to make a suspect confess. So ask questions then go back to step 1 and repeat. It is important for your kid to be comfortable enough to tell you every single detail.

During my coaching sessions with my one down, it is always vital to agree on an action plan rather than spoon feeding it to them. You have to get their buy in or commitment to the action plan. You can give them all the action plans in the world but it won’t amount to anything if there is no commitment.
So going back to your kid, guide her. Don’t tell her to stop talking to the kid because that ain’t going to happen. Authoritative parenting won’t work and she is too young for love tips coming from you. It’s part of the growing up process of your kid.
So I volunteered to pick up my kid from school. I was busy with my phone while waiting for her. When my childs came out she was accompanied by a male classmate. I had the feeling that this is the same kid she was talking about. I was not angry, I thought it was funny but tried not to smile. I fought the urge to even say anything. When we were alone and on our way home I ask who that person was. And sure enough I was right with my guess. I just brushed it off. The next day I picked her up again. Nobody was accompanying her. I ask her were is your friend. Oh well. She told me that he has a different crush.
If your stress, don’t be. Reserve that stress when she hits puberty. Haha!
