Should people in 4th or 5th grade be dating each other?

At my school people are starting to date in 4th and 5th grade is that wise?

Report as

No. They should be playing with their barbies and toy cars. Then maybe heading to Chuck E Cheese.

It was a LONG time ago, but I think when I was in 4th and 5th grade I was playing video games, riding bikes and skateboards, and playing hide and go seek still......a GF wasn't even a thought that randomly crossed my mind......kids these days are above and beyond ridiculous.....8(

Sorry, but 10 year old children have not hit puberty, especially the boys.

Well, it would have to be an really super exceptional person to make a commitment that will be certified maybe ten or eleven years after to be together for the rest of their lives. That s what dating really is... Gby

It's not really a teen relationship. But it doesn't really matter, I don't think. My best friend and her boyfriend have been dating since 3rd grade.

Are you serious! No! They are children and should be building their social skills not learning about commitments.

What's it with people rushing into dating so early? When I was that age, we used to make fun of someone for liking a girl, lol.

Definetely not. But they could be close friends and after they grow up, they could be more. Gby

If they haven't hit double digits, they shouldn't be dating. Wait till 14 or 15 years old.

Well I think it is ok because they can practice for real life.

Well......they aren't really "dating" because they can't drive or go anywhere or do anything together etc. So, what is happening is that they "like" each other which is perfectly fine. Everyone likes someone, or has a crush on someone. It's natural, and normal.

It's not actually called dating. It's just little puppy love, they like each other i mean if they r still together until middle school i would call it a relationship

When i was in 5th grade people got "asked out" but no dating unless the school cafeteria counts, so i would say not if the two people aren't mature enough to handle a relationship, or if their parents don't want them to.

I don't see a problem with it. i mean, now a days, that's starting to be normal. i know it was growing up on the military base.

Agreed with AirLovesZombies, theres nothing wrong with it, age doesnt matter, what matters is how you treat them and how you guys love eachother. Love is very sparkle and unpredicatble. Can't change that.

They can kind of joke around about it, but not get serious. Its okay if like they hold hands on the play ground, but anything more than buying the other a chocolate bar is going to far.

Are you serious? That is really wierd. What kind of world is this? Unless the two are physically GOING on dates, they aren't dating. It is NOT wise, they are NOT old enough and as cute as it may be to some people, that is just really disturbing in my mind.
