Or maybe he should just forget girls all together and figure out what he wants out of life and in the future. However, I dont think he will give her up in 2 weeks time and the more his mother fights the relationship the more he will fight to stay in it. It really is no different than a woman being in an abusive situation with a man, not much you can do until the person realizes the other person is no good for them. Good luck

I dont really have any advice other than to talk calmy to her son about her concerns and issues. Yelling and taking things away from teens only makes them want to rebel more. If he was nerdy before than he may feel this girl is the only one he will get and wants to please her so that he can feel good about himself as well. My son is 16 and he wants nothing to do with women and dating as he tells me he is too selfish lol and is not ready for a commited relationship and he wants to enjoy being young and free. However, I talk to my son regularly and we have a mutual understanding and respect for each other. I wish your friends luck

He's 16, summer is coming send him away to a relative for a visit for a month or camp something like that it will give him an opportunity to see his life without her. You said he was sort of a nerd before this girl maybe he is enjoying not being at the bottom of the totem pole for a change honestly mom has to let him learn from his mistakes and back off a little.

He could get in to a lot of trouble for having nude pics on his phone, especially if they are of a person under 17 or 18. He does not want to be a labeled a sex offender for life. As for the rest, I am not sure. I am sure mom's pushing is only making things worse, but I don't have any real advice... sorry!
