My 17 year old daughter's boyfriend has asked us to allow our daughter to fly with him to another state to visit his grandparents for four days. After repeated attempts to get more details I decided to call the boyfriend's mom & ask for the address where the kids would be staying, phone number & grandparents' names. I was planning to give the grandparents a call to discuss the specifics of the visit since I've never met these people. Unfortunately, the boyfriend's mom became very defensive & suggested that because of my husband's former career in law enforcement we were probably going to do a background check on the grandparents. That wasn't our intention at all, but red flags did go up. Should I press for more info or just say, "No," to the trip?
