Age of first kiss?

My son is in 6th grade and soon to be 12.  One of his friends is kissing his girlfriend in the halls....is this the age this behavior starts nowadays?  This other boy is 11, seems very young to me but maybe I'm out of the loop.  we have talked to my son about such behaviors and feel he is educated but I still am in shock that 11 year olds are kissing???

BUTif he dosnt wan to tell u about his problems then dont force it out

Well, it's true that this is about the age they hit puberty and start to think about girls, kissing, masterbation (masturbation) and yes, sex. But that doesn't mean that it things should be encouraged that they're not ready for or have the maturity to handle.
Yes, it's a good idea to talk to him on a regular basis. Talk to him about the changes his body may be going through and that it's getting ready for him to become a man but that he's too young to be kissing girls just yet. Besides, most schools have a zero policy on PDA (Public Display of Affection) and don't allow kissing, hugging, etc. on school grounds.
It's best to keep him busy with school and sports at this age. Kids already try to grow up too fast in this day and age.
Best wishes.

I keep my soon to be 14 yr old boy into different activities and a close eye on where he goes and who he will be with. Always talk to the parents to see what their rules are before letting him go over there. Especially if they have daughters!! I wouldn't let my son go over to one of his friends because they had an older daughter even though they were strict. He was allowed to go over during the day with parents their but not spend the night. Your doing the right thing by talking to him, keep on doing it because he might not comment but he is listening.

I really dont think there is some sort of age restriction for kissing. I had mine at 12 and my friend had his a year younger, yea he had his at 11 and he didn't turn into some rapist. even though kissing at that age still sounds a bit strange. My opinion is that people should loosen up, its just lips touching lips. And what about disney princess books? almost everyone of them has a prince kissing the princess and parents let kids read them and those kids are fine. You should trust your son, if he is going to grow up and become a man he should be capable of making good decisions and not go have sex.  Anyways kids around his age usually find anything related to sex, hormone and puberty really disgusting and repulsive. So unless your son is not someone who you would think is mature and responsible enough to handle these kind of things you should just relax.
