caro33 Posted October 10, 2017 Share Posted October 10, 2017 Just wanted to share, I think it's delightful.... Son is almost 10. His iPad is connected to his father's iPad, so we've known that among the Pokemon searches he's looked up 'flirting in primary school' a few times. He's also started to care a bit more about his appearance, and has stopped doing nudie runs through the house - he's very into his privacy. Tonight he asked me whether when I had crushes as a kid, did I tell anyone. Realising that was considering telling me something I said 'my mother!' (which was absolutely untrue). He said 'did she laugh at you?'. 'Oh no!' I say. Then he tells me that there are three girls in his class who flirt with him, but he only likes one, so how does he tell the other two he doesn't like them in 'that way' without breaking their hearts? He told me who he liked and said it was good to tell someone because he's not able to tell people at school in case they tease him. My advice was to not tell either of the other two girls in case he's got it wrong and/or it hurts their feelings. That he can stay friends with them all but if he wants to have the one he fancies over, he can. I asked if anyone at school has dates or goes out and he said no way. This is happening a bit earlier than I thought, but I think it just a cute crush. I told him how great his dad was with women and he should ask his dad for advice as well It's lovely that he told me because he doesn't open up at all. Link to comment
