I woke up today feeling rather upset. I should have a more reasonable excuse but I don't. It wasn't me who was hurt. It was my daughter. She is 15 and has been talking to then dating a boy for nearly 3 years. He usually acts like a great kid and with some of the idiots I have met her age I am quite fond of him. Every few months he has an episode where he will just hurt her to the point of her breaking down. It happened again last night after 3 months and I just don't know what I can do. I tried just telling her I am putting my foot down and making them stop seeing each other but I know her and I know she will see him somehow. I have had talks with this young man and even argued with him but he just doesn't stop these outbursts. Last night she was so upset over the way he acted in front of a group of his friends that she nearly had a nervous breakdown. He came over and calmed her down but I stood there and cried and held her because I don't know what else I can do.
I don't want to forbid her from seeing him and then find out in a few months that she went out and got pregnant so that he could be in his life.
Being a mom is so rewarding and I love it more than anything however watching your child hurt about anything is just soul wrenching.
