I provide counseling for some students and two of the kids have mentioned that they are in a polyamorous relationship (not with each other though). Both girls are very excited about this and said they feel comfortable in the relationship.

I am just thinking about how hard it is to have a high school relationship with one person let alone two! Maybe this is their way of exploring their sense of self, but I anticipate this ending badly due to jealously or something like that.

My concern, above it ending badly, are the girls being talked into it. I would like to know more about why they chose it. Who's idea was it?

One girl is not enrolled in our school any longer, so I'm not sure her reason for entering into the relationship.

The other one made it sound like the situation just arose and she felt fine with it. Very weird. I told her to talk to her therapist about it because it's a bit beyond my training.

I've heard that is the "new thing." Not that it's really a new thing, but it's become a much more common state for teenagers. I find it kind of disturbing, but I honestly find any kind of sex (including oral) outside committed, long-term amongst still-developing adolescents disturbing, too. Probably because I have my own 12.5, 14, and 15.5 yo children, and I feel they are FAR too young to be engaging in sex

I definitely see the potential for increased drama in school with these types of relationships. Not that we need more drama in school!
