My 17 Year Old Son Is Blackmailing MeYes just when things seem like they have gotten as crazy as they can get my 17 year old offers up a new twist to my situation, blackmail! He has been talking to his best friend's ex girlfriend who lives in another city 45 min to an hour from here. He want to take her to a movie today, he has been talking about it all week. He assured me I could meet the girl's father but aside from that details were vauge.
Both of our cars are out of commission. I have made great progress on my soon to ex's Lexus (she is out of town this week and next), but it is not year drivable. He wants me to borrow my mother's car and i told him I could not as I had to spend the time to fix the car. Then all on his own he decides to call friends and offer them money to drive him there. I told him I was not going to let him go to see a girl I don't know with a friend of his I do not know, to another city. He then warned me of the dire consequences if i did not let him have his way. He told me he was going to tell my wife I had been calling her names to him. He said "she will believe me, she is mad at you." Sweet kid huh? He left to go to his friend's house and i let him go, he is too big to try to stop and i have a midterm tomorrow and the house is a wreck. I sent my wife a text message warning her of the coming blackmail so who knows what she will believe. He will be 18 in late December. I could always change the locks on the house then.
