want best for son

by sheila

My son often spends hours and hours with his girlfriend. He just graduated. She is in high school. I've asked him to be home for dinner. He's not doing it. What limits are fair?

Dear Sheila,

You are fighting a losing battle! Try to be less demanding and share more with him when he is home. It is very difficult to force a boy “in love” to remain a son first. I am afraid nature is working against you here.
