the more you push about your son not being with this girl the more hell want to be with her. from now on just what ever youll see hell drop her...
do you have a higher power? well so does your son. and unfortunately you'll have to accept that he is in his hands.
How hilarious that I found this question now. We just went through this with my baby sister and her psycho exboyfriend. We all started being nice to him and telling her that we didn't think he was so bad, just a little misunderstood. We even started having him come to the house for dinner a couple of times a week. Introduced him to family night (movies, bowling). He got sick of it real quick, and she got sick of him not fitting in. Funny thing is, the night she was going to break up with him, he said he had something to tell her. Guess what? Their breakup was mutual. How funny. We payed them both. Sometimes reverse psychology does work.
nothing you can do but pray, hes 18
I know it is difficult, but you have to try to stay out of it. The more you meddle, the further you are pushing him away and into her arms. Kids!
Sorry but they never listen to us, parents. Let him make his own mistakes and learn the only way any of us ever does. We can pick these things but they will reject our opinions. Frankly you'd be better off telling him what a wise choice he makes every time he takes her back. Things like "We all need a little chaos in our lives don't we".
Maybe even "She's so beatiful too. How do you keep all the other guys away", Not subtle but still positive towards her. Get the drift? The more you insist she goes, the more he will resist you.
Truly if you could do it without laughing or screaming I bet he'd get rid of her.
Some don't learn until it hits them in the face....tell that when he realizes what he is doing he will learn till then....let him make his mistakes its the only way he will learn
Sounds like he needs a healthy dose of self esteem. There are many books out there on how to help your child gain one. He probably wouldn't be with her if he felt good about himself and believed that he was worth more.
I'm so sorry you have to watch that happen to him. Has to be rough.
That is a problem with people that age. I love her. She'll change. Or, I love her. She's right, and you're wrong. Either way, hopefully, they won't have any kids to complcate things. It tends to be worse for the kids.
I have some friends in situations like that with nut-jobs abounding on the othe side of the family. Not very comfortable.
