Pardon me, I was just sitting here thinking about Calista and her plight when I started reminiscing about my own childhood. Back to Calista. From her recent diary entries, it looks like Calista feels that she is ready for a boyfriend. But her parents will not let her date until she is 16. But shouldn't Calista be allowed to make the choice for herself about when she's ready? What do you think? Is Calista too young to have a boyfriend? Is there a difference between dating and having a boyfriend? Please let me know what you think and vote in my poll.

When I was in elementary/middle school, this is how we described girls who seemed determined to have a boyfriend or boyfriends: "boy crazy." When a girl decided to eat lunch in the cafeteria with a boy instead of girls, she was boy crazy. When a girl decided to spend recess with a boy instead of girls, she was boy crazy. When a girl was caught writing a boy's name down 117 times in her notebook, she was most definitely boy crazy. By high school, the vast majority of us had succumbed to boy craziness.
