      Well my daughter told me and my husband that a one of her friends told her and two other girls that she is bi-sexual. 6th grade mind you. I mean I am not shocked that much because it is 2008 and things are not the same as when I grew up. But still it was just out of the blue. There is always something new happening with these little ladies.

      So now one of the girls doesnt want the bi-sexual girl to stay over her house anymore for sleep overs because she thinks that she would be looking at her wrong and in a sexual way. And also the girl who had the sleep over is mad because she feels like she should’ve been told before the sleepovers.  

      Well my daughter said” mom thats her preference and she is still my friend as long as she respects the boundaries of me only liking boys then everything will be fine. Then my daughter said that she does think that she shouldve told before the sleep overs.I just like to hear whatmy daughter thinks, you know.

      I dont know this child,so I cant give alot of info. she only socializes with my daughter in school, she is not one the ones who call or come to visit my daughter.I just listened and gave my advice, but as you can see she has a good mind and head on her shoulders. I think she handled it well.It is just scary out her there is alot for our daughters to deal with. I told her that you never know what the bi sexual girl is going through either. She is just a child to me. But the respect must be there.

      Has anyone had anything like this happen yet? And if the childs parents know that their child is bi,do you think that they should’ve told the parent that was having the sleepover? I think the little 11 year old shouldve just kept it private.

        • Wow...my daughter will be 23 in November...thank god!
          She never told me anything like that about her friends when she was that age. And congratulations, your daughter sounds very forward thinking and very grounded in herself. She sounds like she has been raised to accept people for who they are, based on their character, and not to judge out of fear.
          I don’t know if I agree that the other little girl should have kept it private though.
          You never know how the conversation started between them. Little girls talk about boys and crushes and lord knows what all else these days.  They were probably talking about which boys they liked and the other girl was probably feeling really comfortable with them and just came out and said she liked such and such and thingamajig.
