This is my first time looking for advise. It certainly isn't the end of the world, but...
My 15 year old son has his 1st girlfriend. She lives 30 minutes away, which is also a toll call. (huge phone bill) He does get to see her most weekends. This past Friday, I drove him to her high school football game. Dropped him off at 7, picked him up at 11:00, drove his friends home. Saturday night I picked her up and drove her home. Got home at midnight. Sunday I took my kids to my parents, a 2 hour drive each way. Work on Monday.
He's upset because I won't drive him to her house tonight. Since I drove all weekend, worked all day, I don't feel like making 2 one hour round trips. Now I'm getting the silent treatment.
Is this a stage. Do I ignore his behavior, send him to his room, give him some "mother's guilt"?
Thanks for any advise!!!
