Remember i told you guys about an old school mate of mine who was having some problems with his son "doing it too early " with his " too little too young" girlfriend and my friend shared his story with me.... so it goes.
He finally confronted his son with the proof of the used and the unused condoms indicating that my friend knew what his son was doing. He told me his son was so cool about it when confronted even with the proof, and moreover his son was so cool untill he told my friend that there was nothing wrong with him having sex and many of his friends were doing it as well.
My friend was furious but he could not resort to punishing him at his age of 16, so he told me. My friend however decided that he wanted to talk to his son's girlfriend as well so he summoned his son to invite his girlfriend over to talk about the issue.
What my friend narrated to me about his son's girlfriend's reaction really blew my mind. The girl told my friend that she knew what she was doing, assuring my friend somemore that they would not create havoc and moreover Raymond (my friend's son name) was not her first boyfriend that she had the "close encounter " with.
My friend told me that he was caught by surprise with the girl's defence of her action, and my friend said he felt so ashamed of himself that he felt that he was not qualified to lecture them for he was just like that once.
When i asked about what his present wife reaction towards this issue, he told me his wife (who is from China) could not do anythig about it as the relationship between she and his children is much less to desire.
He told me he had no choice but too leave it to the youngsters and their own wisdom to do what is wrongfully right or righfully wrong.
Can't we correct them if we were once bad?
P/S : May be sometimes we should seek God when man's wisdom fails
