I don't wan to bore you with my personal problems so I will make this as short as possible.
My daughter is almost 16 (in Dec) but she has been through and seen more in life than most adults so she is very smart. Her maturity level though is that of any other normal 16 year olds.
She just had her first boy friend last October when (Brandon) took her to the Home Coming Dance. She really like him allot. I thought he was just the greatest thing that could have ever happened. He was so nice and polite.
Unsupervised dating at the age of 15 is out of the question so I would take them out. We have a few places around here that are like an adult Chuck E Cheese. The 3 of us would go eat and then I would give them $100.00 or so to go off and do their thing and i would stay at the table on my computer. Sometime times we just went to eat or I would allow Brandon over but the bed room door had to stay open. We would go to the mall and I would go my way they would go theirs Ok I think you got the picture.
Brandon did some really mean things to my daughter last week and she broke up with him. He tried to kill himself and was put in the mental hospital. He got out last night and called my daughter. He said he was sorry and that they had told him at the hospital he was Bi-Polar along with some other issues.
She gets off the phone and when she is telling me this I also find out that this nice, sweet boy has a history of being mean to her and then right away feeling bad and trying to take it back and tell her how sorry he is.
We have Bi-Polar in our family so my daughter knows what it is and how it makes people plus I don't know what these other issues they have diagnosed him with are.
I asked her last night why she stayed with him if he was doing these mean things? She said because she was hoping he would change. Then I asked her what was she was going to do about him and she said "I don't know"
So now the question is... what do I do? I am not a controlling parent. Me and my daughter have a very close relationship. She is my best friend.So keeping that in mind... what do I do?
Please nobody quote this post. I have never puy any thing concerning my daughter on line but I just want you ladies to see how beautiful she is and I do intend on deleting the picture at some point so PLEASE DON"T QUOTE THE POST. I can't believe I am even putting it up.
