question about teenage boys/girls
Ok. Do I need to be worried? My 13 yr old son has a girlfriend. OK, so thats not worrying me.. most do at that age.. but... While doing laundry the other day, emptying the pockets (trying to push the point...I WASNT SNOOPING) I found some letters from my 13 yr old (baby's) pants pockets. Of course... not being one to resist temptation.. I read them.

Oh My god!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that stuff is mushy..... I dont even write my husband letters like that.

All lovey dovey... i love you... I cant live w/o you... You make my world a nicer place..... your so sexy...(umm hello... this is my twiggy son we are talkin about)

Should this kind of "very mature" letters bother me?

i think if it's not graphically sexual in nature, it's probably pretty normal teenager-y love letter.

:giggle: I agree, as long as it didn't refer to any sex acts I think you're OK.

I know how you feel! It's so sad when they start talking like that. Unfortunately it happens younger now than it did when I was a kid. I found a note this morning on the dining room table too. Luckily DS is still at the "circle yes or no" stage w/ his notes to his girlfriend LOL

I agree with the other mamas, as long as it's not a sexual type of note I wouldn't worry. It is heartbreaking when they're feeling grown up enough to have (or think they have) those feelings :(

Don't worry about it mama. Girls tend to be somewhat more advanced at this age and write all kinds of mushy stuff where boys tend to laugh it off. I used to teach middle school and it is a very akward age. No explict sexual connotations in that note, just puppy love stuff. Not to worry.
If you are worried, check his pockets from time to time, or have hubby have that talk with him.
Good luck and hang in there, the road is about to get much rockier.
