Sounds normal. Especially if he is an only child. It could be worse, he could be holed up in his room playing computer games all weekend. Just make sure you know where he is and who he is with, and if he is staying overnight, know the parents and verify that he has been invited. It is also worth returning the favour sometimes - have his friends over to your house. Get to know them - getting to know your kid's friends really helps with feeling comfortable about their movements on weekends when they all go off together.

Thanks! My fiance & I have been arguing about this for awhile!! But we had several siblings growing up. I couldn't imagine being an only child. What you said was pretty much dead on what I've been trying to explain to him. Plus my son stays home during the week unless he has sports or church. Thanks again!!!

I don't think any kid at that age wants to be home! LOL...
Like Jodi said, just make sure you know who he's with and what they're doing, and if you feel uncomfortable about any of his friends, have a calm discussion with him about it!
