its nothing serious between us just holding hands and hugging but i dont know what my parents will say if they find out which i reallllly hope they dont!! T00 i am 12 and i really like this guy but its really hard to talk to my parents. i like this guy and have been seeing him at my friends houses or the beach but my mom and dad dont know that i really hangout with guys or like them.i want to be able to have him pick me up and go places to hangout and i want them to know that he is picking me up and its a boy i like and who is going to be my boyfriend soon!! Di thing is, where im from it's not rlly "our culture" to get in serious relationships at a young age. idk but at least i didn't get in trouble you should try to prove to them dat u r mature enough to handle a serious relationship.Your parents are probably just as nervous as you are to have this conversation.Thus, our parents will be thankful that you helped start the important dialogue! You should focus on what you would like to discuss.And, while your teen needs you more than ever to help them through this challenging time, they are also seeking independence and turning to peers.
