Man Is Praised For Keeping His Stepdaughter’s Request A Secret.
These days, raising a teenager is challenging. Monitoring their activities is quite difficult. Trust is the only way a child may share their feelings or what they are doing to their parents. Read this story of a father dealing with a situation with his step daughter and do you agree with him.
I’m going to try to keep this short and simple. I always tell my daughter and my stepdaughter if they’re ever in a situation that they need to get out of, just call me and I’ll drop whatever I’m doing and I will pick them up no questions asked no judgments made. I let them know that I used to be a teenager once before, I told them everyone is entitled to make bad decisions every now and then. We’re only human and it’s a part of life.
Last weekend I got a call from my stepdaughter (17), she told me she snuck out of the house and went to a party and had too much to drink. She was scared of passing out at the party because there was people there she didn’t know.
I got there just in time, she was so drunk she couldn’t even walk. I had to pick her up and carry her to the car. I told her I was disappointed that she snuck out, but I also told her I was glad she made the right choice, the safe choice to have me pick her up.
I haven’t told my wife about it, because I don’t want to violate the deal I made with her. I want her to know that she can trust me. I just hope I’m making the right choice.
Am I doing the right thing?
