Have you been, or are you, a parent to teenagers? Need some input on this fairly age-old problem.
My hubby woke up this morning to the front door wide open and our playstation gone (nothing else though). He went downstairs to see if the playstation was downstairs and found a girl in our 17 year old son’s bed.
This girl is a friend of my son’s. I’ve spoken with her and she’s spent a great deal of time at my house (not like this though). From what I understand she’s bashing heads with her mom big time and she often takes off out of the house and just sits over at the local elementary school ALL NIGHT. My son has, in the past, gone over and sat with her until she’s calm and then walked her home but lately the fights with her mom have become violent. Which is why she ended up at my house last night.
I’ve told my son that I need to talk to her because I’m involved now. I certainly don’t want her wandering the streets all night when she fights with her mom. But I also know that the two of them have feelings for one another which puts us is a very difficult position. I know I’m going to have to talk to her mom too. That’s going to be freaking hard!
