Does that mean that can pass for a boy? That kind of thing may feel confusing to a certain girl, but it’s never been more important to be aware that the rules in your life are much more flexible than your childhood imaginations. If you live in a rural area, or perhaps even in your own town, you can find out more about what your options are. Just keep in mind this is an age-appropriate discussion.
Q. Mom’s ex-boyfriend is cheating with her: I’ve seen this before with my mother’s ex-boyfriend, a man in his 40s but a highly active and talented man. One day last week he came over to our home to meet up with a girl I was seeing. I got dressed before we left, and his mother was supposed to come pick her up. He showed up at the house and waited for my mother and got into a heated argument with her. They both started yelling at each other, both refusing to leave when I asked them to and saying all sorts of nasty things about me to each other, accusing me of wanting to hurt her, etc. My mom then left with her daughter at a quick pace. Now she’s gone. I know I’m not the only one, but I want to set the record straight for someone who might read my mother’s story and see these things and think, “He’s lying about going to get this girl, why would she do that?” His mother is a very competent person; she has a successful career, pays her taxes, is married at 46 and has two adorable children. What kind of explanation could she have for why she’d let her child go? I know I need to set the record straight for someone who might read my mother’s story and come to that conclusion.
A. “We’re not talking about a teenage boy here!” is a very valid concern for parents. Your mother’s story does not justify a man in his 40s going around to other women’s homes without the woman’s consent. If the other female, if your mother was not present for the exchange, may have known her mother wasn’t home at the time, she would certainly be required to consent if she did let a man into her family’s home. It’s always good to go with the more cautious parent.
