Question: Can my 11 year old daughter have a boyfriend?

An 11-year-old should not have a boyfriend or girlfriend. Though some may look physically adult at such a young age, tweens do not have the ability to handle the emotional decisions that accompany romantic relationships. Im a mom to four former 11-year-olds.

At what age should I let my daughter have a boyfriend?

And what age is appropriate? The American Academy of Pediatrics notes that on average, girls begin dating as early as 12 and a half years old, and boys a year older. But it may not be the kind of “dating” youre picturing.
