My 10 year old daughter left her messages on roblox open and when I sat down to use the computer I saw her conversation with her best friend another 10 year old little girl and they are planning to going to the toilets together at break time tomorrow and kissing for the first time.

The fact that she's interested in other girls doesn't bother me. What does bother me is that she's only 10. She's my baby sad i don't want her kissing anybody.
not yet anyway

I don't know how to approach this subject with her. I don't want to embarass her or shame her.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

I don’t have the answers but I really recommend a face book group called raising kids without sexual shame.

We help each other navigate exactly these kind of situations hopefully without fucking our kids up

Could they just be practicing for kissing boys? My first kiss was with my best friend as we wanted a trial run before any guys ha (although I was older than 10)

Please dont label her as interested in girls at this age, maybe she is maybe she isn't, maybe she is experimenting. Also in my experience 10/11 I.e the last 2 years of primary is when most kids might start to attempt a kiss it doesn't mean you have lost your little girl.

She’s not a baby. It’s not your choice when and who she kisses. You are reacting very oddly to all this!

Sounds like it could just be two little girls practising for the next stage of their lives. I have a 10 year old (son) and he’s not yet shown any interest In anything other than friendship. I am glad of this, as I agree with op he’s my baby ( actually my eldest) and I want him to embrace being a kid for a little while longer, childhood is so short and precious. If I were you op I’d just leave it for now, and wait until she comes to you to talk. Perhaps you could tell her all about your first crush (even on a pop star) and maybe that will prompt her to confide in you and you can take it from there. Good luck💕
