It either because their parents aren't watching them close enough, and saying no. Or because to ten and eleven years olds, you're the lamest person ever if you don't have a boyfriend/girlfriend. When I was their age I thought boys had cooties...Wow, things really have changed.
um have you seen the commercials my 6 year old sister asked me the other day what cum was and what a condom was then claimed to have a boy friend so its in our world if the kids go to school then its real hard to avoid stuff like that
because society is shaping our lifestyle. think about it, people used to start dating at around 16. eventually people are like "oh im almost 16, i can start dating". this becomes natural for 15 year olds to date. then comes a 14 year old that says "oh. im almost 15, ican start dating". this continues until 10 year olds do this
They just want to feel more grown up and media today makes everyone want to date and do stuff like that no matter how young you are in fact most TV shows have lots of that stuff in it, even kids shows and I personally thinks its OK to like someone at that age and kinda have puppy love for each other as long as it doesn't go to far besides their not really dating unless they go out on dates and times have changed alot, I liked boys at that age but never really started getting in relationships and all that until I was 13 sooo yea hope this helped.
they have no clue as to life. parents aren't how they use to be. my age was 16 not 15 or below. parents are allowing children to grow up to fast. some are pushing it at a young age and think its cute. as far as mine 16 is the age no younger and they must show responsibility. Raise them to know and limit what they can and can't see on TV. My 4 year old cousin sits around adults all in conversations and his momma think its cool. poor judgement!
because the parents are lazy, apparently too lazy to think about the welfare of their own children. also, being self absorbed and shallow seems to be the new paradigm. in the city I live in, a few years ago, at a high school junior dance 200 of the 220 girl in that grade came to a rented but public place for the dance dressed as Victorias Secret angels! one of the chaperoning teachers was so mortified and stunned that these young girls had come out in public in only panties and push-up bras with feathery wings that she started calling parents, all but 40 said " yes, I know, so what?". for the most part the homes these girls came from were upper middle class, with many parents in the professions, so, in general educated people that should be able to use critical thinking skills.I don't know when the social pendulum will swing back, but I really wish would happen soon and slow down some when it reaches the middle. well, now that I've broadcast my usual harangue I suppose I should zip it and get some sleep. I really didn't mean to co-opt your platform for your question. sorry.
My sister told me her friends "dated" the same guy. Probably their "date" was school lunch! I tried to explain to my sister that dating at the age of 10 isn't dating. It's "hey do you want to hold my hand and be my girlfriend?" Seriously. It's terrible the world we live in, yet we wonder why there's so much teen pregnancy!

I can not find a word that describes what we are being like many others here, not many years ago that I had this old and I can say it is not like you are saying in some cases yes ... but often has nothing to do with parents at our age "love" can be replaced by "best friendship" Our "friend" is the person who makes us smile, it helps us with our problems, is our best friend has nothing to do with arming large is a beautiful and innocent moment and I do not see any harm in it may not be as big as in older ages ... but however small it is, it's still love
A better question is why are they also having sex? When I was that age I wasn't even socially active. These days if you try to discipline your kid they say you're abusing them. I got spanked and smacked and you know what? I knew my mom did it because she had to. She couldn't let me grow up to be spoiled and expect to always get my way. you can count on it when i have kids and they do something wrong I will spank them. People seem to rather have pregnant tweens around then letting the parents spank them
with the way society is now.... it becoming the new norms. Kids childhood phases are getting shorter and shorter... it is very sad, but unfortunately true. The parents could do something about it, but to each parenting style, their own.
