My 8 year old Daughter has developed love thoughts.
My wife and I were shocked and disoriented about what we discovered about our 8 year old first born daughter.
She has this little exercise book where she ordinarily draws family members, flowers and write how she loves the family.
Yesterday my wife discovered a recently written page, painted with flowers and with love words to a named boy from church. The boy is about 11 and the children only meet when we are at church (before Covid 19).
She wrote words like; “I love you so much X…….. Our love is getting stronger………..if you want to die I will die with you………..if you want a baby girl I will give birth to a baby for you”…..
My wife threatened to beat her and later in confusion left it there and told the girl that she will be reported to dad (me) for a good beating.
After getting it I told my wife this is tricky we need wisdom from both God and those with experience in parenting. I have not talked to the child yet, we are praying and seeking your experienced wisdom.
I doubt the possibility of the children having talked to each other about love apart from playing together normally in groups.
The major concern is how we are going to manage our 8yr old girl who according to us has developed love thoughts towards the opposite sex too early.May 31, 2020 |
