I have just about had enough!
For those of you who are raising little boys, allow me to warn you: when they get a little older (and I do mean a little older), they will be facing some rather aggressive girls who do not live by the same social etiquette rules most of us grew up with!
I remember being told by both of my parents not to pursue boys, and that was pretty easy for me to accept. I had two brothers, so I knew the gross side of boys. The rule that stands out foremost in my mind was the ”don’t call boys” rule. But in today’s tween/teen social environment, you can forget that one because now not only do tween and teen girls call boys, they text them, send notes on Facebook, send photos, and plop right next to them at the boys’ lunch table, insert themselves into their conversations, and pursue away!
I am much more concerned about my son having to deal with aggressive members of the opposite sex than I have ever been with his older sister. She has even shared with me that there are girls at school ”creepin” on him all the time. For those of you not in the know, “creepin” is showing aggressive interest in someone.
What? That makes this mama bear want to roar and protect her cub…
What’s a mom to do? Unfortunately this scenario is getting played out younger and younger. Join me over at MomLife Today and learn about how we deal with aggressive girls and learn about a GREAT new resource “Aggressive Girls, Clueless Boys” – trust me, this is a book you want to read!
