the girls love my son. he’s 11. why do they dig him so much? because of his chocolate brown eyes? because he can climb a tree like a chimp?
it’s because when the best friend of a girl who likes him comes up and says, “Caitlyn likes you. do you like her?” his response is always, “tell her i’m not interested.”
and then of course he gets confused about why the best friend is so mad at him. he was just being honest.
girls adore my son because he’s not into them yet and constantly rejects them. do the psychology on that one.
i give it about 6 more months. maybe less.
here are some other kids being honest about relationships.
what weird thing did you think about relationships as a kid? or that a kid said to you that you knew wasn’t true?
