It's hard at that age. I didn't have fibro when my three sons were growing up but I have grandchildren I am responsible for. My grandson is now 21 so I have no say about what he does and the less I know the better off I am. I do know when he comes home on breaks from school he becomes nocturnal when he gets together with his old high school friends.
I have a 19 yr old granddaughter that is now 26 weeks pregnant. She graduated high school a year earlier than most and couldn't wait to get out on her own and go to college. All was going well til she got pregnant three months into a relationship. The plan was for her to finish junior college this year and transfer to a university next year. Obviously that 's not going to happen now. It wasn't like we hadn't had the sex talk about 100 times. You can only teach them right from wrong and to be responsible for their actions and the rest is up to them when they turn 18.
She has always worked, sometimes two jobs and is really mature for her age. She lived with two other girls til the end of Dec. She found a room close to work that she has been living in for the past few weeks cause it is too far for her to drive to work from our house everyday in bad weather. She will be moving into an apartment the first of Feb and it does scare me to death for her to be living on her own where she doesn't know anyone 45 minutes away from us. We have talked about all the safety issues when she is out by herself since she left home. At this point in her life all I can do is pray everynight for her safety.
For all you young women that don't get why your parents worry about you so much when your out late, just wait til your a parent and you will find out why.
luv and hugs
