Teenage boys and damsels in distress part 2

My teenage son has a girlfriend. He has a computer a laptop and she doesn't. So he's often going over to her house so she can use his laptop to do her school work.

I told him the other night she can go to the library but he's not to be coming home after midnight because she needs his computer.

Seems to me like she needs to be coming to YOUR house.

My HS girlfriend tutored me in math.

LOL - my now-DH always needed to borrow my notes (for the class he sat next to me in).

Re: Teenage boys and damsels in distress part 2

First of all, if you bought your teenager the computer (which there is a good chance you did), all you have to say is he is not to take it to his girl friend's house, it is for him to use, not her. You are wise in saying that she can go to the library. Teenagers with that much time together alone is asking for trouble. There is a good chance they are probably just using the laptop as an excuse.

Re: Teenage boys and damsels in distress part 2

DS bought his own computer

My issue is she relies on his computer because she doesn't like going to the library

When he gets in late he sleeps thru his alarm and the arrival of the friend he carpools with...which means DM & DH can't sleep in

Stating the obvious here... it's not about the library. It's about getting to see your DS. She has a built in excuse to invite him over.
