My 16 year old has been dating a kid we have known for 10 years. I know his family. I thought he was a good kid. He gets good grades and is an excellent athlete. I thought he really loved my daughter. He ended up being super controlling. He kept her away from friends and wanted to know what she wore to school every day. He also wanted her to quit cheerleading, something she has been doing since 2nd grade. He put her in a headlock when they were fighting over her phone. Then, he stole my credit card information and purchased almost 900.00 worth of stuff. After all this I still feel bad for him. He needs a lot of help. His father has been in and out of jail most of his life. His mother is single with four kids. I treated him like a son. I know my daughter still love him. I obviously don't want them together anymore. I want help in building her self worth, without bashing him and pushing her away even more.
