You have a 15 year old son. One day he says, "Mom/Dad, I have a problem. I like both Veronica and Betty. I'm not sure who I like better. This is complicated because I got them both pregnant. I know I know, I should have worn a condom, but it just doesn't feel as good wearing a rubber, ya know? Anyway, both of them want to keep the baby and I don't know what to do. Oh, this girl named Sabrina might be pregnant too. What should I do?" Your response?
Your 18 year old daughter wants to go on American Idol (yes, it's still on). She thinks she's a wonderful singer. However, in actuality, she's tone deaf and her range is exactly 2 notes on the scale. In other words, she sucks, but she thinks she's going to win it. As her parent, what do you say?
Through his best friend, your 17 year old son has suddenly found religion. He's embraced mormonism. He tries really hard to get you to join him for church each weekend, and badgers you every couple of days about the afterlife and how you might not be there with him. How do you deal with him?
Your 15 year old daughter has her girlfriends over and her door is closed. You made them cookies and open the door to bring it to them. You see them sitting in a circle, and your daughter is inhaling from a big bong. It smells like cheap weed in the room. What do you say?
