I really can't stand this kid! I'm also not a fake person and it's hard for me to even be nice to him when he's here. Tonight my dd's friends told me how much they can't stand him as well.
Tonight DD and I sat down and had a talk. She's getting upset that her boyfriend lies to her and tries to tell her what to do and who to hang around with. He tries to get her to not do things with her friends, but then he won't do anything with her either.
DD made an interesting comment tonight about how she thinks she likes this boy because her dad isn't in her life, and it's good to get attention (although generally negative) from her boyfriend. I told her that that was something that I always worried about...her dad says he loves her and then ignores her...which is exactly what her boyfriend does. I told her how she deserves so much better and that I know it's sometimes easier to go out with someone who isn't so great than to not go out with anyone at all...but she really does deserve more than she's getting.
I keep hoping that eventually she'll catch on. She told me tonight that she thinks he's cheating on her! She's even figured out that he's controling! He's controling, moody, lies! What a dreamboat!!!
