My 15 year old son is dating a girl for one year now. His girlfriend just turned 16 and he will be 16 in 4 months. They are both very conservative and "good" kids. We believe them when they say they ...
Well, your ex is right about one thing. Most boys that age do their thinking with their little heads, instead of with the head on their shoulders. However, the key word is "most."
As his parent, you know your son best. That doesn't mean you know everything about him, nor does it mean that he will always do what you think should be done. Mistakes are human nature, everyone makes them.
But if you and your son have a relationship which is based upon good communication, then the foundation is there. I say go with your gut instincts. Tell your ex that children do not always imitate their parents. Further tell him that he has two choices: He can meet with the school's social worker and discuss the matter like an adult, with an open mind ~ or he can shut the hell up.
Works for me!
Love it jk! Works for me too! I'm not naive, I understand where ex is coming from and I know my son is still just a teenage boy, but if that's the case and he's going to sleep around anyway (which I know will eventually happen), why would changing girlfriends every couple of months like my ex would prefer be better than being in a monogomous relationship. I just don't get his though process. Chances of getting a disease (or getting a girl or girls pregnant for that matter) increases with multiple partners. I'd much rather it be this way . . . makes so much more sense to me.
