My son's girlfriend?

My 15 yo son has his first girlfriend and she's so annoying! Now, there's nothing really wrong with her, she's a just a typical 15 yo teen, full of drama and thinking she knows more than everyone else. Well, I just finished getting 2 daughters through that phase and I can't stand to be around it again. Any suggestions on how to maintain a good relationship with her while hoping this relationship ends soon?

  • In general with teenagers, the more you are pleasantly indifferent, the better. Say hello, ask no questions about her, don't engage in conversation about her, just do the basic checking up on them. Dont let them see your clever parental eyes. They will get bored with each other soon enough.

  • Be patient. Try to ignore her antics unless she is being disrespectful.

  • Welcome to the wonderful world of the son's significant other!!!! I don't know if you have noticed or not, but the trend is to really never love the girlfriend or wife of the son. You can probably bet that someone on your husband's side isn't too keen on you. Keep this in mind, and don't fall into the trap. Accept her and try to see the positive in her.

  • Whats the big deal? She's not your girlfriend! How would you feel if her parents felt this way about your son? She's just a kid. And if he dumps her whos to say he wouln't pick a worse one?

  • Sorry, you will just have to deal with her. Boys that age do not keep the same girlfriend very long. But you will have to deal with different girls.

  • i would try to overlook it , like you said it is a teenage girl thing. and he could end up with worse. you might find she is actually not that bad if you get to know her better. but you never know and boys and girls don't keep the same girlfriend that long usually. i think i had a bf for 2 years but it was off n on with him then i got wise. good luck

  • Get over it...that really is all you can do. You can't help the way you feel and she can't help being 15, if it isn't her it would be someone else and the next girl could be a whole lot worse!
