I am glad to see this. I have told my daughter (now 14) about this “I like you” behavior — -but I have also told her it is because at that age they are unable to understand that this is the wrong way to express that feeling, and that it is VERY IMPORTANT that we address this with boys who do this, let them know NO THAT IS NOT OK so that these boys grow up to be men THAT KNOW BETTER. And my daughter does not put up with that mess and counsels her friends to be wise about what they tolerate from boys.
