Dd1 just turned 5 and is in VPK. She told DH the other day that she has a boyfriend in her class. She won’t really tell us what that means, just that they hold hands sometimes and give hugs.

I’m not ready for “boyfriends”! Does anyone else’s LO have a boyfriend/girlfriend around this age? Any tips on talking to your kids about it? She doesn’t like to even tell me much about her day at school, so she DEFINITELY doesn’t want to tell me about her little boyfriend. And maybe it’s much more innocent than my mom brain is thinking. So I don’t want to make it a bigger deal than it is. But maybe we need to be having more directed conversations about boys already?
