Secret Boyfriend Alert: HELP!!!!


filipina96 July 12, 2009

I have been hiding the fact that I have a boyfriend from my family for a year except for my younger sister, who I highly trust. But I'm not sure how to tell my mom because I don't know how she'll react. She gets all teasy about boys and I don't usually talk to her about boys. Plus, she's a little strict when it comes to the opposite sex.How do I tell her without making her mad at me?

filipina96, welcome to GreatSchool community. I read your profile, and if everything you wrote is true, than I'm sorry that you had to go through so much in life at such a young age...loss of a parent is a huge tragedy for any child.

I also noticed, that you are struggling at school. However, I was ahppy to see that you responded/offered advice on how to keep a teenaged boy focused on studies and away from girls. Since you are also only 13 years old, I would ask you where should be your focus? No, I don;t think every 13 year old girl has a boy friend! I have many teenaged boys and girls around me so i think I know! While I believe in a open relationship between a parent and his/her child, your mother obviouly has high aspirations for you. I can see why she would be upset.

My advice would be to communicate with her in a way where she can see that any "boy" issue won;t affect your focus on more imporant things in life when you are 13! Also, falling into peer pressure can be sometimes devastating and only a very strong individual can stand upto it. I'm hoping that at this point, you have a plutonic relationship! Although, you didn;t ask this question, but I'll offer my advice anyway! I would highly urge you to pls. stay away from any physical interaction with your boyfriend. You don't want to make a mistake you regret all your life! Best of luck in your endeavours! Cheers

Thanks for the advice. Trust me, I don't have any physical interaction with him, except for hugging. But right now, my main focus is getting the best grades possible for the 8th grade, but I'm not struggling with grades.
