Well, I may be a bit jaded and cynical myself, but when it hits my kids, I feel awful.
My son has his first “real” girlfriend and things are going well (apparently) and then out of the blue, two days after their second prom–the dreaded text message (yes, you read that right) “I think we should see other people.”
I felt horrible for him. She was a great girl and they were good together. As a parent, I thought he hit the jackpot–she was attractive, polite, not into drinking or drugs, social, and more.
So, now we are going through the whole post breakup routine–do I call her… what should I say… how should I do this…
It is an inevitable part of growing up, but still very sad to see nonetheless!
