Second, make household rules about dating and make them stick for every child in your home.It’s completely natural that your tween wants to rush into all the things he or she sees older kids doing. Just because a particular choice is the “norm” these days doesn’t make it a good choice.Although it's usually true that girls do mature socially earlier than boys do, we are not talking here about socialization skills -- we are talking about 11-year-olds dating.I would not belittle or embarrass your daughter by making fun of her sudden attraction to "the guys at school," but I would set clear dating guidelines at this time.I believe that 11-year-olds are far too young to engage in dating behaviors.Although your daughter may look years older than her age, her emotional intelligence, reasoning, and judgment have a long way to go to catch up to her body.
Of even greater concern is that there has been almost no research on the effects of these sweeteners on the still-developing bodies and brains of children.

My 11 year old daughter has a "boyfriend", what should I do?
I didn’t even know where to begin; it was a new life for me, taking care of a new life. Today, I realized that my firstborn son’s feet are bigger than mine. One of the first revelations I had as a mother was looking into my baby boy’s face and realizing that someday, someone I didn’t know yet was going to love him.
I knew even then one of my biggest responsibilities as a mother was to help him grow to be a man who could love and be loved. Same goes for the word “slut.” Related pro tip: Nothing makes someone “psycho” faster than when you aren’t direct about breaking up with her. Everyone you date will someday either be an ex or a spouse.
