After years of teasing them about a schoolboy (or girl) crush, your child has finally found love. Or, at least, the tween definition of it. Whether you found out from them or their Facebook relationship status, you aren't quite sure how to feel about the big news. On the one hand, you're excited for them to experience all the things that come with having a boyfriend or girlfriend — the first date, first dance, first kiss. At the same time, you're scared to see them deal with relationship downfalls — the first fight, the first breakup, the first heartbreak.

It's definitely a mixed bag, but we have the emotional breakdown to help you get through your child's first relationship (and all the ones that will follow).
