Homeschooling mama to 6 year old DD.
I do know that most of her peers are interested in boys, and I've heard enough girls her age talk about how cute "that" boy is.......... I also wonder if she is feeling pressured by the peer relations about liking boys and having those kinds of interactions happening at school?
Anyone got any thoughts?
It sounds like you and your husband have made it clear that you love her regardless of whether she likes boys, girls, or both. Her anxiety over this issue sounds like its coming from school. Rather than probe the sexual orientation issue with her (while some kids do know early on, I think many don't have a clear sense of this until they're older), maybe talk to her about her friends' interests in boys, ask how she feels about it, etc.
but everything has pros and cons
