Have an opinion?
I would certainly intervene and interrupt this action. This is not the way I would have educated my boy.Everyone knows that flirting is just the beginning of something that will eventually end with being intimate. The definition of flirting is"... sexual behavior involving verbal or written communication, as well as body language, by one person to another to suggest interest in a deeper relationship with the other person..."And everyone knows what is meant with deeper relationship. I have not educated my boy to be a womanizer and pervert.He would be grounded for a while and probably be sent for a number of sessions with the child psychologist. I don't want him to become one of those sexual perverts later in life.
I'm surprised how many people around here take this positively
makes us feel like cynics, doesn't it?
Not cynics but people that care about giving a good education and respecting others rather than to promote sexual harassment and endorse proactive molesting the opposite gender.At least from my point of view.
and thanks for the MHO of course ;-)
Probably they don't know I am there and I wouldn't mess up in their things...
If it was harmless flirting. Later when it was just us. I would let them know I saw them trying to flirt with someone. Maybe ask how it went.Depending on how they reply. Maybe offer up some advice for next time.Now if it was not harmless flirting. I would try to interject. By maybe asking the a question about some random thing. Which would give the other person a chance to leave. If they wanted to. But if they stuck around. Then it is on them for doing so.People need to learn from mistakes. Either there own or people then know.
Proud! Assuming that the other person is the same age you should not feel any other way. If you do then you have failed as a parent. It is your responsibility to enable your children to achieve their goals, not yours, and not control their lives, or their futures! Intervene only when necessary. Kissing and holding hands and hugging and cuddling is normal. Inappropriate physical contact before a certain age is not. Keep that in mind when making your assessment.
I'd feel pleased a little amused and of course interested in what happens next.In fact, my daughter immediately let me know of her first romantic - and innocent - kiss when she was 14, sent me photos being dressed up for disco (accidentally met her future husband the same evening) when she was 19, even 'indicated' what happened later that evening.Knowing that I can trust her judgement and own decisions I can only enjoy seeing my kid/s growing up.
Listen we live in a time where no one talks to each other face to face anymore buried in there smart phones. We live in a very lonely society even though people are everywhere. Kids need to integrate with other kids so they can learn social skills. Fuck yes I approve. The more she learns as a child the less awkward it will make her as an adult :)
Depends if they were any good at it. And how old they were. 😆 I think I would not promote that they have to have a girlfriend or boyfriend... but just flirting, that’s no big deal.
If it's just flirting, I'd be proud of her. If it's blatantly sexual, it would depend how old she was.
They are growing up. I don't understand why people want to keep their kids Children for ever. Mother Nature knows what She is doing.
I would feel probably a little awkward, but hey they would be doing better then me. At least I hope they got their mom’s flirting genes and not mine, unless their mom is also bad at flirting. Then I hope they got neither.
I would try to hold in my laughter and give him advice afterwards
I'm a very considerate person, and unless I knew the person they're hitting on is toxic so to speak, I'd neither feel nor do anything.
My mom told me their was this boy in first grade that really liked me but I was mean to him. He’d always give her a flower to give to me. We moved I vaguely remember this.
I mean, unless they're being pushy or gross about it, whats the big deal?
I would be upset if it was my daughter If it was my son I would encourage it 😂
The old double standard ey?Joking aside id probably be protective as fuck if i had a daughter too
@Pulimuli double standards are legitimate Women and men need to be treated differently because they are different 😊 and that's ok
Lol your daughter also need to find boyfriend i am sure you want grandchildren
@CallmeJazz I do, but I don't want her to be the one hitting on guys. I want a boy from our community that we know flirting and making a move.
As long as if was pure and heterosexually enticed, I'd not be that upset or worried because it's a normal phase of life. I went through it between 11 and 15 with girls.
If they’re doing it with respect and they’re not crossing any lines and the other person is accepting it well, then this would be me:
My son did this while we were driving and it was awkward. He was trying to get some girls number and it was just horrible. I laughed but he swears he has "game," but whatever lol.
depends on how old they are the kid and the other person
You mean, any one of my sons, for years. They can't help it. They just have always liked girls.
If it's your daughters she's grounded forever, and if it's your son your proud
Proud probably, but afterwards I'd have to give them the birds and bees talk xD
I would just smile and say nothing, but later at home I would talk to him since he's at that age.
If my mom and especially my dad found out I flirt in school I would be dead ☠️
Probably be getting my geeky dad spy on, and trying to think of pointers I never knew at their age in preparation for the dreaded "Talk".
I'd feel pride. And then immediately worry about if the other person was okay with it, or if my kid is now going to get bullied or, worse, in trouble.
Depends on so many factors... if it was a son id be like get that pussy son... if it was my daughter hitting on. Some 3rd world scum bag id be like your dead to me
as a 3rd worlder, that hurt
Their kids they dont know any better. Stop thinking like a pervert
It's flirting? OK. Harassment? We're gonna have something to talk about right after.
Stand back and watch. Make sure they don't know that you're listening/ there.
Idky I thought your comment was funny
Glad to hear it.
I would guide them. It's their choice in the end no matter what.
What about you?
I would feel sufficient.
I'd let them I think it's cute.
I dont even know tbh.
Wait, I have a child? Fuck.
I would make light fun of him
Give them a stern look and tell them to stop.
I would watch and learn.
Kids grow up so fast these days...
The FBI shall open up
Proud, I would most definitely be proud
I'd say hey it's normal
I'd be impressed
I don’t know I prob would be proud of them
I'd record it lol.
Beat them in public
over the top solution, step daddy😂
I call it tough love
Good luck too them.
No big deal.
