Is it okay for a the girlfriend of your son to send you a text stating that he was going to be late getting home and that her dad said it was okay?

How would you react to this situation?

I wasn't sure how to react and responded with a text saying "Well, your dad doesn't have to answer to me." Next thing I knew I received another text from her stating that my son was on his way home!

  • Perhaps the dad just meant that it was okay that your son was at his house late, not that he was getting home late. I think your issue should be directly with your son. You need to tell him that if he's going to be late, he needs to be the one calling you to ASK if it is okay or he'll not be allowed to go out at all for awhile.

  • Same way you did. Your son needs to be the one ASKING if he could be late getting home.
