My 9yrs Old Son Asked Me If It Is Right To Like A Girl At His Age by Xcelinteriors(f): 3:13pm On May 20, 2020
So this morning I was in the office with my son and he said mum, there's something he want to ask and I should promise not to get angry and I told him to ask anything

Then he drop the bombshell, he said there's this girl he like in his class, I opened my mouth for like few seconds and don't know what to say. I asked him how did he know he like the girl and he told me since the day he stepped into that school he has developed feelings for the girl. Inside me I was shouting blood of Jesus but pretend everything is fine

I said ok can you tell me why you like the girl? He said the girl is intelligent and beautiful. I did not even know what to tell him honestly but am not happy at all and I really want to deal with him when we get home. Please mummies and daddies, how do I handle this

Dealing with him isn't the right solution, he need a rigid counseling.

It is natural. grin

The difference between him and an average Nigerian kid is that he's more expressive about his feelings.
Now, how you choose to handle the situation is up to you.

It's okay he's open to you. Try encourage the juvenile to study rather: explain that dating is strictly for marriage.

That's a smart boy you've got there. Don't use self-righteousness to rob him off his innocence.

Tell him it's okay to be friends with the girl he likes and may be WHEN HE GROWS UP, he can marry her (na wash).

Flog him for opening up at your own peril! that will be the last time he'd open up to you about anything.

Best bet is to tactically talk him out of it making him see reasons why he shouldn't have such feelings at such tender age!

Best of luck

He trusted you enough to share his feelings with you. Now it's your duty to guide him to the right path with love. Don't punish him please, otherwise he will recoil.

There is nothing abnormal about a 9year old liking a girl.

Boys at that age tend to pretend, but if you observe them closely, most of them know "what's up".

there is absolutely nothing wrong with a boy of 9yrs old saying he likes a girl... its completely normal. you should actually be proud of the child that he was even so honest to you about it.

what you have to understand is that at such age, it means nothing... it certainly does not mean that they are gonna start dating and have kids, but a child of 9 can be attracted to a girl. i think my 1st crush was at the same age and she was my teacher. NO BIG DEAL!

The world is corrupt especially with easy access to internet and white culture. My advice is for you to censor what he watches, ask his Teacher to monitor him, give him enough house chores to humble him, increase his daily assignments, buy him more books and encourage him to build a reading culture instead of exposing him to internet and television. You should regulate his exposure to them

Haba thread cautiously o. Kids knows and feels differently from what the society allows, it is biology calling. you have to handle it with care or he will never confide in you again. Tell him it is natural but also help him see season why it is such a bad idea at this point in time. Let him know the time will definitely come but not yet

Are you in Africa? what do you mean by there's nothing abnormal in telling his Mother/Father he likes a girl. Is that the reason he goes to school? the child is clearly distracted and this will cause poor academic performance. It's not normal in our culture. He's not even a teenager but he's bold enough to tell his parent that he likes a beautiful girl cheesy
