I am facing a bit of a parenting dilemma tonight. Kid is sixteen, and has made some bad choices in regards to his school work and grades. Now I have to decide how much do I intervene on his behalf, how much do I let the fall-out and natural consequences of his choices land on him, and do I add at home punishment into the mix.
It is way more complicated than that, of course … but that is the crux of my dilemma.
It all starts now, with a face to face conversation.
