He's 15. 16 on the 17th. He's amazing and smart with awesome grades and a great personality. He's open and honest with me and we talk about everything...or so I thought.
I knew he had a 'friend' named Paige. I found out a few days ago Paige is really his girlfriend. Fine. Then he tells me they broke up because she cheated on him. Fine, good riddance.
Today I get a call from the vice principal of his school. Uh oh. He was caught ditching a class with this Paige person. This has never ever happened before. The VP warned me that this isn't Paige's first rodeo but she really couldn't tell me much because of confidentiality of the students.
As soon as he got home today I gave him a home marijuana test. Just in case. It was negative. At school he will need the teachers to sign him into every class so ditching will be impossible without us knowing.
I'm at a loss. I'm not even angry, just terribly disappointed. I want to nip this in the bud now. He has such a bright future ahead of him. Hubby and I will discuss all this tonight but if anybody has suggestions, I'm open.
