Our expert says:
your daughters interest in boys, and also her feelings about her appearance are very typical of her developmental stage. However, it is important that she is able to speak with you about these issues and it is great that you have begun doing this.
Whilst there is often a pre-occupation with appearance at this age, it is helpful for her to be aware that there are many different body types and that her own happiness lies in being accepting of herself - that way when she does begin dating she will have a positive self-image that has a major impact on who she finds herself in relationships with - appearance is only one aspect of attractiveness, and the others sustain a relationship long after our youthful looks have gone!
