Ha! I went the opposite route and thought I would be THE COOLEST MOM…like Ever…
I allowed my daughter to have her boyfriend not only spend the night but move in with her and I !
Ummm worst choice ….like ever
I let the little shit move in cause he was a teenage “orphan” and I felt bad for him. He was like a stray dog with no fur-ever home
Long story short – it ended with him putting a huge hole in my bedroom wall and a bigger one in her heart and her psyche.
Total little jerk and we both fell for his sadness and sweetness . He was a horrific lad and a huge lesson
I only had one child so “no practice runs “
You made the best choice and one day your son will thank you for being a “bad mom”
