My nursing student is needing a car at college at a certain point coming up (for clinicals). Her first clinicals start second semester sophomore year. She just finished her freshman year VERY strong and I am very proud of her.
What is my worry? She has an at home boyfriend who is about to graduate high school but is otherwise drifting -- not sure what he is going to do, not going to college, perhaps the military (but he is apparently underweight) and what I don't want happening is her driving to his house every weekend rather than studying (with some classmates) and such as she has been doing this year which has been a giant key to her success.
I understand I cannot control that -- but any words or wisdom other than trust her? (I want to, but the boyfriend sometimes has an odd hold over her and I am amazed at the decisions she will make that she otherwise would not). The only other thing is she doesn't work at school and would probably run out of gas and toll $$ pretty quickly.
