Today one of my friends called me and asked if my son was home and i told him yeah. Well he said this little girl that is in his class at school wants to talk to him. He said she was going to ask him to be her boyfriend. Uhm wtf. NO! My son is 4 years old, he doesn't need a girlfriend. What is wrong with some people?
And he wasn't playing around he was 10000% serious. It just kind of upsets me. I want my son to enjoy being a kid not have some girl trying to be his girlfriend.

It's harmless at 4 years old - they really don't even know what it means to be boyfriend & girlfriend. It's just a title.
I had a "boyfriend" in kindergarten - we just made each other crafts and talked on the phone like once a week. haha.

It's not like they know what being by friend and girlfriend really is. It's just something fun to kids. You're overreacting.

You're really upset about that?! :?...it's not like the kid wanted to marry him and take him away from you forever. They're 4 years old, they don't know what being a boyfriend/girlfriend really means. It's just all fun and silly to them.

I had a boyfriend in kindergarten. We never kissed, or held hands or any of that stuff. Plus, I dumped him because he couldn't get a quarter to buy a ring out of those machines. :D

I think you're over-reacting. At that age it's like a game and all innocence. I had a boyfriend at 4. He pushed me on the swings and we got ice cream from the ice cream truck together. He's now a pretty cute drag queen with a nice fiance.

I got "married" at that age lol. It's innocent. They will probably just share snacks in class and then get bored.

This little girl is a girl that told me she wanted to be just like her mom and have kids when she was 16 and told me that she has a "fat ass". She's not a normal 4 year old. Her "mother" has 4 other kids and makes her change diapers and shit. She's being kind of mean to him because he isaid ew i dont want a girlfriend and shes making fun of him now., :(

I remember having a boyfriend in kindergarten too. We went out for one day. It was a day that we went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch and went on a hay ride. He sat beside me on the hay ride...and that was basically all our relationship consisted of. :lol:

I kinda think you're overreacting. It's cute. They are replicating what they see adults do.

Well, I wouldn't over react about him having a 'girlfriend' at that age. But, if the girl is making fun of him and saying those kind of things (that she has a 'fat ass') those are things a 4 year old shouldn't be saying, I would talk to her parents about it or talk to the teacher so she can keep a closer eye on her and if she observes the little girl talking that way or making fun of your LO, she can have a conference with the parents.

Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" Let him settle his OWN issues with her. :? Every little girl wants to be like their mom at that age, ... [snip!] ... her. Don't judge the girl based on shit her mom teaches her... She IS being normal... Normal for her is what she's hearing. "

I feel bad that her mom is teaching her those things and i'm always nice to her and everything i just dont want her to be mean to him because he doesnt want to be her "boyfriend."
