My daughter called me today distraught that her 16 year old son want to move in with his father. I know his dad well and he's a good guy. He's done his best to do his part for his son. Sometimes he's screwed up and he does have a hard time keeping a job. But other than that, I think that 16 is old enough to make a good decision about his own life. My grandson is very responsible. He gets good grades. He has lots of family, really more so where his dad lives compared to my daughter.. Frankly my daughter and her husband of 8 years sometimes lock horns and son seems to get stuck in the middle, defending mom, not defending mom.. Frankly I think he wants and needs a change. Am I being a horrible mother to my daughter for actually thinking that this might be a good thing?
