      My daughter is 11 and she does not talk to boys yet on the phone. I think that she can talk to them in school right now, that is good enough what do you think.

        • My youngest daugter is 12 and has started talking to boys on the phone but it is really just to organise homework and things like that. Its gets worse when they are older as I discovered with my older daughter who is 15 and talks to boys alot now on the cell phone. I think it is the smsing that we need to worry more about.

        • No cell phones.  No problem.  Of course, they have begged themselves blue in the face and beyond, but I cannot be moved on this subject.  This only invites problems that we don’t need.  Ok. My 14 y/o says she wouldn’t give out her number, but, I explained that if a boy wanted to talk to her, all he had to do was get it from one of her friends.  Talk in school all you want, but that’s not allowed at home.  She’s still not giving up.

        • I have a son (13)and a daughter(12)...Although I would prefer that they not have boys(for my daughter) and girls(for my son) calling our house, it’s pretty tough to enforce...They are in the same grade...not the same classes..but they do have the same friends..On Saturday evenings they all(about 15 kids) go hang out skating or movies..I like that because they look out for each other...If it was just myself and my girls as it used to be, then no, she would not be able to have boys calling my house..

        • I am more liberal and mind you I have a boy.  I allow his friends (m/f) call my home # within a certain hours and he should hang around to talk (I listened of course) and if any other calls come in or if I needed to use the phone, he needed to give way.  That only applied during the time he did not have a cell phone.  Once he had a cell phone, then it turned to another story.
