Ahhhh to be young again.....NOT...
I wouldn't trade age 42 for high school again....
My son dated a girl last year. For valentines, I helped him make a pink minkee teddy bear. Two days later, she broke up with him. 2 hours after that, she started calling saying she'd made a mistake. They've danced around each other ever since. They did go to prom.
2 weeks ago, during football practice, another boy asked Sam if he was still interested in the girl. Sam told him yes. A week after that, the boy and the girl started dating. Sam feels a little betrayed, but understands and is pretty laid back.
tonight, he went to the State Fair with those two and several other class mates. Sam has had some major drug and alcohol problems and we keep him on a tight leash. One part of that is that he has NO money. The former GF was actually the one who invited him along and covered his admission.
At one point during the evening, the couple ditched the rest of the crowd. Shortly after that, the girl that Sam was pretty much partnering up with told Sam that the couple told her that Sam's intention was to be nice to her so that he could "get laid". ??!!
This is a group of Christian school kids. While I am sure there are hormones involved, this was simply the couple trying to make Sam look like a jerk and luckily the others were smarter.
I feel for my kid, but he seems to have his head screwed on straight over this. The etiquette of parenting is that I have to stay out of it largely...!!!
