BJ'S BLOG 07/01/14 "I Caught My Daughter Having Sex"
Welcome back to Group Therapy, everybody! Let’s relax for this session, shall we? Pull up your favorite recliner and lean back all the way. Aaaahhh, doesn’t that feel nice? Not a care in the world.
Ted needs some advice from his fellow Rock-A-Holics. You see, Ted has a 15-year-old daughter that he’s raising on his own; the mother’s not a part of their lives, and lives in another state, anyway.
Ted says his Daughter is great: she gives him no trouble, does well in school, and is a joy to be around.
Unfortunately, Ted’s daughter is growing up a little bit faster than her father would prefer. On Saturday night, Ted walked downstairs to find the daughter and her boyfriend (who is one year older, at 16) having sex on Ted’s recliner!
Ted’s first reaction was a strong desire to put the hurt on the boyfriend, but he didn’t follow through with it. Now, Ted really doesn’t know what to do, and he’s hoping to hear from you, good people. As disturbed as he is by the discovery, Ted feels like forbidding them to see each other will only make this young romance into a “Romeo and Juliet” situation, and things will just get more complicated.
I know it has to be tough for the single dads. I’m lucky to have a wife, especially with two kids in the house. My daughter, especially, always has a mom to talk to, and that really takes the pressure off me.
Before I turn this over to you, let’s have a moment of silence for the silent victim in this situation: Ted’s recliner. A man’s chair is his royal throne…and I don’t think I could ever sit comfortably in mine again if I caught my daughter doing the nasty on it.
What advice do you have for Ted, good people?
