Dating a 17yr
In fact, the whole thing is quite odd..if not for your son, but for this grown woman who has chosen your son to "date". In fact, I would have her over for a nice chat before I ever let my child step foot in her car, to her home, or anywhere else she might come up with.I would be spending a lot of time with your son to help him understand how wrong this is. There is just no future in this, so why even start it?Your son has lots to learn about himself and the world before he needs to add a taboo relationship in.He should be concentrating on sports, school, girls (not woman), friends and his future.I hope that when my little boy is a teenager, we have an open enough relationship where we can discuss what is going on in his life.I'd want to know why he's attracted to her, what she's like, what they like to do together, etc., and I'd want to have that conversation in a very non-confrontational way. I might talk about some of the difficulties that could arise because of the age difference--"had you thought about...." or "what would happen if...." You might talk about some of his plans for after high school, and see how that lines up with this relationship. I would only say that 17 is probably too young to be in a permanent relationship, regardless of any age difference. If it is temporary, then no bridges will have been burnt; if it is a true and permanent partnership, then you will have laid the groundwork for future good relationships. He may get hurt, he may have risked the same hurt with a partner of his own age.Hello everyone, This is my first post in a internet forum. Pease if there are other Moms out there that have det with theis please help!I am at a total loss here, My 17 year old son is dating a older woman, 26 to be exact. the consentual age in my state is 16, and it seems that this has been going on for awhile. Mommy Mommy, Hello, and welcome to the Healthboards.
His sitcom, which was on its way to becoming one of the most celebrated shows in television history, won an Emmy in the category of “Outstanding Comedy Series” for the first and only time.
I am anxious to read along with you, as I am the mother of a 16 year old son myself....
After thinking this over, I would have major problems with my teenage son "dating" a 26 year old woman.
This is a tough one Mom, but as long as you stand by your son and keep him close, I imagine this will all pass.
Is it possible your son may have lied to his lady friend and said he was an adult?
