Stop the drama before it starts by never saying “NO.” My 12 year old asked if she could have a boyfriend. I said “Of course you can, BUT he can’t call you, you can’t call him, he can’t come over here, you can’t go to his house, no note writing, no hugging at school, and of course, no sex.” She said “forget it.” Yeah, I win!!!! Ding Ding Ding –LOL – High Five- Fist pump.
