Need some advice
To all you fathers and to the ladies of this forum, I need some advice.
My 16 year old son has 20 year old girlfriend. It has been causing me and my ex-wife a lot of grief. This girl isn’t very mentally stable. The first indicator of this is the fact that she (an adult) is going after a minor. She should be dating MEN who are out of high school, not boys. She has anorexia and burns herself when she gets depressed. She isn’t very respectful toward her parents nor to my ex and I.
Their relationship has been on and off. I don’t think they have had sex but I know they have kissed on several occassions. After declaring they had broken up, my son gave her a $250 guitar for Christmas.
We are at our witt’s end. I want to see the relationship end permanently but realize that it’s got to be my son’s decision. I have also been thinking that I should report her to the authorities and have her cited for sexual delinquincy of a minor. Here in Oregon where I live, an 18 year old can’t legally have sexual contact with a 17 year old…that includes kissing.
If you have any words of wisdom I sure could use it right about now. I look forward to your responses.
