Yeah, there isn't anything hotter than having a tackle box on your face. ;DSourdough said:Skyler went to Catholic school till he was a junior. When he transfered to public school and Michelle and I went to the first hockey meeting at the high school. We were in shock with the way the girls were dressing, and all the face metal.
Sky dates some girls from the University now but he still does not date ones with face metal or tattoos. He thinks the dreadlocks are disgusting. Skyler is a body builder and has massive chest and shoulders. Girls are always coming up and sitting near him, or trying to start a conversation, to try and get his attention. He is soft spoken, quite, respectful, and tolerant, except to the girls with dreadlocks. He gives them a disgusted look and says out loud, "Wash your stinking hair, stay away from me"!
That's a prime example of why we need to be parents first not friends to our children. My daughter invited a friend (girl) over to dinner and it was a very similar situation. Needless to say she has never come back to our house. With my only child being a 17 year old daughter I run a tight ship. I encourage open communication and playing by the rules. Most of all I remind her how special she is to us and when I scrutinize a boy to the point the boy is intimidated; well that's just because he's starting from a position of not being good enough for her to begin with.Questor said:Sorry. I am remiss. I made the original post in a state of shock.
Her friend is another girl, one year older than her (16). This girl clashes a bit with the upbringing my daughter has had. She has a current boy friend (OK), but she refers to her old boy friends as all of her ex-es. She tends to blame teachers for giving bad grades. Her cell phone is always getting text messages and calls from various boy friends that she corresponds with by cell phone or e-mail, including one guy of unknown age in Japan and several in other states. She was describing one of her family dogs as always trying to "hump" her. Last year she was 15 and went with a senior to the senior prom. Maybe none of this seems very shocking to you and you're wondering what I'm concerned about, but it was truly quite unusual for me.
Where's that rosary!?! I'm gonna have to count beads for a couple of hours.
A very wise and reasoned view IMHO. Go back as far as you want and every generation thinks that the new one will ruin the world. We still haven't made it there yet .45-70.gov said:not to upset anyone
