My son has his first girlfriend at 17. What happened to the idea of a sweet, innocent time when a boy likes a girl? Where holding hands is thrilling? anyway, this relationship started out fast and furious. He is the top of his class at school and is a leader in many areas of school and church. But his girlfriend, who went away to college this year(Thank God!) still takes up a lot of his time. They spend 6 hours a day messaging and skyping a day. I snooped on their messages and it is sexual in nature. I feel like pulling the plug on everything! I am very concerned about him to say the least. He's gone from being active, adventuring, fun, funny, lots of friends, interesting to boring and keeping in his room laying on the bed messaging every spare second of the day. Any suggestions?
