It wouldn't bother me and to be honest I don't know how you could stop it. I think speaking to her parents is a bit over the top imo, She's not really getting into boys, she's just copying off her older cousin.
E is 9, 10 this week and is into One Direction and she loves Niall and goes on about him, not over the top to me but Im sure she does with her friends and her friends will be the same.

I think you are right in that I cant really stop it. She just seems so young to be saying she loves Harry! :-\

She's just copying, you'll find she'll be influenced by her friends/cousins for a good few years to come.

Yeah I am starting to see that...... :-/

She's not into boys, she's just sort of role playing the language and ideas of her cousin. Very difficult to stop, but she will hopefully forget it or lose interest in it as time goes on. I think I would tell my daughter that she could have 1D stuff when she was older, just ignore the other comments.

i doubt you can stop it tbh. just ignore it. liek you say it dies off when she doesnt see her cousin so oit clearly isnt top of her list of priorities

I think you are being a bit silly, yes.
She obviously look up to her cousin, so isn't "into" boys, she is just doing what her cousin does. She'll soon grow out of it/get over it.

My eldest E (also 4) does something similar with her cousins, but as they're all boys we don't get One Direction and Love, we get Power Rangers and Fighting/Killing. I think I'd almost prefer One Direction! Initially I tried to stop her cousins from watching Power rangers and playing it with her, but it didn't work so i have had to learn to ignore it, and try to explain why sometimes its not nice to talk about killing.
Sometimes I just have to take a deep breath and walk away, does it get easier?

my four year old gets influanced by her older sister who is nearly 16 and her love is West Ham and Professer Green give me 1D any day of the week. It is perfectly normal and to be honest if anyone hears molly talking about things beyond her years they pretty much know it is the influance of the older child in her life.

Zoe has just turned 5 and says she "loves One Direction". I don't think she actually has a clue who they are but heard some of the older girls at Kids Club talking about them during the summer holidays and has latched on to it. I think it's cute, reminds me how young she actually is.

My now 6 year old said for a long time how much she loved One Direction. She knew one of their songs and that was it. We gave her their CD for Christmas and she was a bit surprised to find that there were lots of other songs.
They are just copying at that age and they will suddenly announce how much they love something quite incongruous or suddenly talk about how much they really like something or want something.
To me its no different to her announcing how much she loves certain boys and how she is going to marry this one or that one. One conversation with her at 4 went like this:
'J is my boyfriend. I am going to marry him'
'Are you? Does J know this?'
'No, its a secret'
