My son takes karate lessons three times a week and has met a "girl" in his class that he has been texting and wants to invite her over for dinner sometime. On top of the usual 14 year old boy stuff that he is dealing with, he also has some emotional and learning issues that aren't apparent to people who don't really know him.
Anyway, she is 22. I told him I didn't like the idea and thought it strange that someone her age would want to hang out with a 14 year old boy. His father (my ex) thinks it's odd too, but doesn't think it is a big deal for her to come over or for them to be friends. I think it's more than odd on her part and would like to put an end to this "friendship". Not sure how to deal with this one since he isn't living with me at the moment :-/

Wow. I agree with you, I don't think I would be comfortable with that either. I would have her over for dinner also like ANGIE409 has already said. If I didn't like the vibes I would tell her to stay the hell away from my son. I'm lying. Well, not telling the whole truth. I would invite her over JUST to tell her to stay away from my son, not to actually get to know her. I've been 14 and hung around older people. My conversation is NOT what they were looking for.
