A. Absolutely nothing.
B. Convince him to dump her ASAP just because I said so.
C. Hand him money to dump her since what I said in B hasn't worked so far.
D. Call her and tell her he hates he so she'll break up with him.
I need advice. I want to go on the MTV show parental control wherein the parents get to pick two other dates for their son/daughter and at the end of the show the kid decides who he likes best.
My wife doesn't care. She shrugs and figures it is his life. That is her form of parenting. Let him figure everything out on his own. That sort of parenting makes no sense to me. I prefer to guide him around the land mines before his arms and legs are blown off. Call me stupid if you must.
Why don't I like her?
Nothing big. She has values. She's nice. She isn't incarcerated. But she just isn't the right girl for him. He can do better if he'd only try. He only likes her because she's easy. No work involved. No effort. He refuses to get shot down, which means he ain't in the game.
But, seriously, should I stay out of this battle or is this part of what good parents do?
