Last night we had to tell our 15 yr old daughter that she had to break up with her BF. Her father found messages that her and her BF were drinking every time they would get together. Then have been together for one yr, go to different schools and see each other less often then she'd like. Anyway he is away for the summer in South America with older step-brothers and his father, parents are divorced. My husband fears the fact that his family is showing him a good-time and could possibly come back with a sexually transmitted disease. Is this a stretch? Yes, but what is a parent to do. Her BF is a smart boy, but let's face it with out his mom with him in a different country, boy's will be boy's.
This is her first BF and I'm positive not her last. The blame is all on us for this break-up and for good reason too. But of course she doesn't see it this way. She is smart enough to know that this will not her last and that the right guy for her will come along, when the time is right.
How did I help her, through this ear-mark in her life?
