Yes, being serious at this age seems scary and, like, too much. And, yes, most American adults think girlfriend/boyfriend sleepovers are not okay.
Here’s why I’m okay with it:…
Resist the urge to think, “NOT my kid!” and instead please think, “MAYBE my kid!” as you read.
Girls are awesome, brilliant, funny, and inspiring. They are also frustrating, stubborn, messy, and sometimes scary. They will, just like all of us, get into situations that are overwhelming and not know whom to turn to for help. They will get into conflicts with one another. They will experience people refusing to tell them why they’re mad, and they’ll do it, too. They will feel frustrated and confused when someone dismisses them with “Just kidding!” or “Why are you overreacting?!”
