I really need help. I recently found out my son has been secretly seeing a girl who is 19, been out of prison for a few months and is a now a convicted sex offender, she is also pregnant from another boy. I told my son he could not see her anymore. He has since become very depressed and doesn't understand why he can't see her as he says they love each other and he would help her with the baby and eventually help get her record expunged in 5 year. He has never dated before.
I don't know what to do or how to help him. What do I do.? Please help ....

The first thing you need to do is keep an open line of communication with him, making sure that he knows you love him, that you're concerned about him and that you are there for him. The second thing you should do is get him into some counseling. You need as many people supporting you as you can to help him make the right choice and not pursue this girlfriend. Those are the first steps you can take to make sure his depression is kept in check and that he's continually discussing his feelings. The last thing you want is for him to think you're standing in the way of what he wants. Then he will resent you. Let him talk, listen to him, respect his feelings and help him see that while he may care for this girl, he must keep his options open. Good luck!
