We’re following up with Beat listeners to see how they made out after they sent in their questions to us – and you – for help. Every Friday, it’s a Follow-Up Friday on the Beat Breakfast Panel.
Earlier this week Signed, concerned mom sent this message …
My son attended one of his first boy girl parties. Most of the kids at this Halloween party were 12. It was a sleepover, there were about 8 or 10 kids there. I have met the parents briefly a few times as their children attend the same school as my boys, but don’t know them as well as I’d like. I bring him. I checked in on him a few hours later. Everything seemed okay, the parents were there and my son seemed happy to be there. So I left him, and went home.
Well, when I picked him up the next day, he said most of them stayed outside in a trailer, they played spin the bottle, and and girl had a six pack of beer! I wanted to lose it! But stayed calm and talked to him about it. He said he did not drink the beer and I believed him but, I feel like this is not a good place to let him hang out.
Am I being over-protective or not? Signed concerned mom
And here’s her message to us …
Thank you for sharing my story on your panel. I have come to the conclusion that my son will not be staying over at that house again. I think maybe he even just agreed to stay in the first place because a friend was standing there. I may have put him in the awkward position myself. BIG learning experience. It did show me though that I can trust him and that feels good. Thanks for everything He will be safe and sound in his own bed from now on. Signed, concerned mom
