Ugh, parenting. My friend's dd17 and my ds17 started talking to each other on Instagram. The girl really wants to date my son but he said while she's cool to talk to, he's not interested in dating bc she's really needy and insecure. Like if she sees he's online but doesn't answer her texts/DMs immediately, she gets passive-aggressive. So imagine my surprise when my friend texted me today that they're going out on Saturday afternoon. I asked ds and he said he felt backed into a corner because she's always asking to hang out and gets sad if he says no. Then he said he was going to find a way out of it. Ugh son, no. I told him teen girls are fragile and hormonal and he can't lead her on and then cancel. The least he could do is have lunch together instead of their bigger, date-ish plans, and tell her he just wants to be friends. Is that the right advice?
