How does a mom help her 16 year old son through a broken heart? My son and my step daughters best friend have been dating for a month or so, but my step daughter hates the idea and is giving them both a lot of grief. So last night his girlfriend broke it off because she couldn't stand the thought of losing her best friend. They both really care for each other. I think they should both sit down together with her and put all their feelings out there. My thoughts are if they deny themselves happiness and love that eventually they will feel resentment towards her for keeping them apart, and that is what will seemingly ruin their friendship. If they put it all on the table, she will be upset/angry for awhile; but if she cares about them she will get over it. And trust me I love all 3 of them as my own and don't want to see any of them hurting.
So glad I am no longer a teen, I personally think they were the worst years of my life, not the best as so many say they are supposed to be.
