Your kid has a boy/girl friend?

At what age would you be okay with your child having a boyfriend or girlfriend? Does the meaning of the word matter to you?

I can remember having a really nice friend in second grade. He asked me to be his girlfriend, and at that age we didn't really know what it meant. More than anything we acted like best buddies and hugged sometimes. Totally innocent, right?

Oh man, my step dad had a freaking fit. Told me I had to go to school and "break up" with my boyfriend. I was sooooo confused.

How would you feel about your grade schooler having a boyfriend or girlfriend?
