    Default My 11 yr old daughter...

    I never imagined being so open and honest with my mother (I don't have anything to do with her any more because of her choice to put men before me). Today I was talking to my 11 yr old daughter whom I have tried my hardest to be honest with and raise right. I didn't want a closed relationship with her. Well I'm dam sure I succeeded.

    Ok to the point.
    We were talking about break ups friendships and all the rest that go along with that subject. She had said something (for the life of me I cannot remember and it's upsetting me) which made me ask. So I did....
    I asked if she likes girls, boys or both? She replied both. With that I added do you mean you could fall in love with a girl? She said yes
    I am over the top she could tell me, I know this is a hard subject to talk about at anytime, and I could see it in her face she was red and eyes wide wondering my response.

    THIS IS NOT A PLACE TO SHOW YOUR NEGATIVITY.
    IF YOU DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE PLEASE LEAVE.

    So I probably should have put my response in....
    I told her that it's ok and I'm proud of her because even some adults cannot admit to themselves or family and friends and she has my full support with all of her decisions! I hugged her and said please if you need to know anything come to me and we can talk more.

    @Stuckinspace that is fantastic! You must feel amazing. I don't have any kiddies yet but I hope when I do that they can be honest with me too! Massive pat on the back 😊

    How lovely that she could tell you. I grew up with a mum who I could never trust with anything personal. She never talked to me about anything but expected me to want to tell her everything about me. My relationships were all secret. I never told her when I started having sex because I knew she would flip out (and I didn't feel comfortable talking about it with her anyway). I really hope I have a relationship with my kids like you do with your daughter

    It is fantastic that your daughter feels comfortable enough to tell you this, it says a lot about your relationship. What a fantastic mother you are to not only raise your child to know she could share this with you but also tell her it's ok to feel the way she does
