My 14 year old Aboriginal son has been dating an Aussie girl for about 2months. Im supportive of them dating but being his first GF (and probably not the last) I acknowledge its early days for both of them. The GFs mother on the other hand treats it like an arranged marriage and we have already clashed about her undermining my parenting. Eg Driving 70km to pick my son up after a disagreement without my knowledge and no advice she had him with her. Recently my son opened a bank account and I was suprised at how much money he had (he outright refuses chores or work) When I questioned him he said GFs mum gave him money. She outright denied it when i asked. 2 days ago he bragged to my husband he had over $400 and told hubby GFs grandmother is giving him money. As an Aboriginal mum who owns a home and always works Im mortified at these women and feel disempowered cause my son refuses to help around the home and is becoming increasingly disrespectful. If this were men giving a girl money they'd be seen as groomers hey?
