When You Don’t Like Your Kid’s Friends

Happy Endings

But remember, in most instances, the friendship will run its course and nothing dire will happen. That was certainly true for my daughter. After a few months, the boyfriend began to complain that she was spending too much time with other friends. The more she pushed him away, the more interested he became. He even came for dinner over Easter break. I remember telling my daughter that the more I got to know him, the more I liked him. The relationship didn't last another week.
