Being a parent is hard.

Having daughters is scary for many reasons.

Currently my oldest daughter has a stalker exboyfriend. I haven’t had to deal with this in my own life, nor have my sister’s dealt with it (mostly because I can count all of our relationships combined on two hands).

Anyway. This kid has gone to lengths that are starting to concern me greatly.

A ‘relationship’ that lasted three weeks last January has turned into a continuous series of odd behavior for a 16 year old boy and has spanned 10 months now. Fake social media accounts, phone calls from strange numbers, contacting her friends and extended family (me included), sending messages, interference with her relationships and friendships.

I have had to intervene and speak to his grandmother but this kid’s parents are very out of the picture.

All I can do at this point is watch and wait.

Its a powerless feeling. I can’t protect her from everything. I can’t reassure her that nothing will ever happen to her.

I can only advise her and encourage communication with me. I hate hate hate this part of being a parent. This is where you start to see all the hard work that you put in over the years. Or not.
