Toby was admitting to his mom that he had skipped one of his classes six times.
 
"Oh, no," responded Mom. "You're going to fail that class."
 
“Wait a minute,” she answered. "The school rule says that five unexcused absences earn a failing grade."
 
"Don't worry, Mom. I'm covered."
 
"Wait a minute. You didn't commit forgery, did you?"
 
"Yeah, Mom. But it's no big deal. Everybody does it."
 
Believe it or not, Mom called a national talk show asking for advice about how to handle the problem without letting Toby fail the class.
 
If I were to ask you about this, you'd probably tell me that Toby needs to face the music. He needs to confess and learn from the situation. And you would be right.
 
Toby's mother can either stand between his bad decision and the consequences, or she can stand beside him, supporting him as he learns from it. She can’t do both.
 
I'd suggest that she say to Toby, “What a sad situation, Toby. How do you want to confess? Do you want to do it in person, in writing, or would you rather have me help you by going with you to the principal’s office? I bet you might like a hug right now. I know that I do.”
 
Raising teens takes courage. Listen frequently to the audio CD, Hormones and Wheels, to help keep up your courage.
