Question: Is it OK to have a boyfriend at 9?

Nine is far too young to be having a solitary, romantic boyfriend or girlfriend. Kids at this age and stage are not equipped to handle the complexities and intense emotions of an exclusive boyfriend-girlfriend relationship.

Can you have a boyfriend at age 9?

There is no law about when you are old enough to have a girlfriend or boyfriend, unlike the age of consent. You need to know your child well, because some children may be ready for a relationship at 12 but another not until they are 17.

Is 9 a good age to start dating?

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, kids start dating at an average age of 12 and a half for girls and 13 and a half for boys. Every teen — or preteen — is different, though, and your child might be ready sooner or later than their peers.
