      but, there are certain biological and psychological changes occure in girls mind naturally, and they seek support and if someone asks or says, i love you......they forget everything and fall in love which is having attraction base. government should start campaign for awareness and make girls understand their changes agewise.....also parents need to understand children and must take in consideration and have talk regularly with their children
