I’ve Had It With My Daughter’s Boyfriend
Thanks so much for starting up the site – it’s great to have a mom out there who gets it!
So my question involves my daughter. Hayley is 14 and has started seeing a boy who’s 2 years older than her called Ron. Ron has a smart mouth on him and does a lot of things that I don’t approve of. I’ve seen him smoking, messing around with other girls and sometimes playing hooky from school.
Everything about Ron is bad news – and of course I’m really worried about my daughter. But Hayley thinks he can do no wrong and if I bring up his name we always end up yelling and screaming at each other.
So what do I do? What would you do?

I feel for you. I really do and think you have genuine cause for concern.
There are two paths you can take here that could result with two drastically different outcomes.
