My 10 year old recently became girlfriend of her dance partner (who is also 10). They have been dance partners for a year now. They email "I love you and I miss you". They only see eachother at dance. No dating! Just at dance and always with a large group of kids and several parents and instructors. They have held hands and give quick hugs good bye. Is this innocent?
sounds like it if the senario is as you describe. Have you asked her about this? It might be worth a discussion about social interactions in elementary school and what saying "I love you may mean to someone"
