Need advice re: 16 yr old son
Hi everyone! My son is 16 years old and for the most part is a good kid. He does things sometimes that disappoint me but I think that is normal.
He has been talking to a girl that is 20 years old. They just met about a week ago but he told me that he really likes her. He said she is so mature and enjoys talking to her. Well, I snooped a little in his emails (I know, I know...I'm going to catch trouble for that one) and they are talking about him going to visit her and staying the night because she goes to college about an hour away and doesn't live w/ her parents. YIKES! I didn't want to freak out when he first started telling me about it because I didn't want to jump the gun. I don't know if I should tell him that he can't see her or just make him follow the same rules that he would if he were to date someone his own age meaning follow curfews, no staying the night, etc. I cannot understand what a 20 yr old girl would see in a 16 yr old boy.
Any advice would be appreciated.
