What?!?! 9 year olds dating?! Okay, something I've ALWAYS thought about relationships, not to be old fashioned, but that they should be saved for when you're in 8th grade and over. Because there's time to be a kid, and time to start being interested in adult things. I feel like kids always naturally are aware of relationships(due to seeing moms and dads, and teenagers, etc), however they naturally are not ready until they are older. And some parents allow kids to be influenced and grow up way way too fast, and they start feeling adult feelings way too young. Just recently my 7 year old cousin came down stairs to tell me she was feeling "emotional". Ha! I didn't even know what that word meant until I was in about 6th/7th grade! I believe that there is a time and a place for everything, and that 9 is way to young. Stay a child! i wish I could be 9 again, being almost 16 is not fun at all, so much to think about and stress about (including relationships).
