Our expert says:
Well, she should be discouraged from feeling she needs to accept kissing just because a boy says he loves her, especially as she doesn't apparently have strong feelings for him. But a 17 year-old dating and kissing a 13-year old steers very close to the criminal, as sex with someone of her age would amount to rape. Tell her that this would be criminal and get the boy into endless trouble, and that it is foolish for her to start into romantic relationships at her age when she has so many better things to do. Your culture is right, and most cultures would agree that she is far too young for dating. Maybe someone should speak to the boy's parents.
And if she hasn't received proper sex education, now is the time to start, and talk with her about not simply basic sex, but the risk of teenage pregnancy, STD and AIDS. And to remind her that once she has given in to this boy, he will probably see to it that she develops a bad reputation, and hat others will expect nothing more of her than sex.
One can't, in the end, protect a child by your own vigilence and closely watching them --- it may only make them more determined to find a way to hide what they're doing. The only hope, and it takes time, is to help them to want to behave well.
