I replied that prom is pretty fancy and maybe she didn't think he could come up with the clothes. I asked what difference does 2 or 4 weeks make when one doesn't have a job?
The Mommy in me wants to come to his rescue and help him go to the Prom with his gf.
But the parent in me thinks he made the decision to get so far behind in school that he had to change to the ged department and miss the formal senior year 'parties'
Then there is the issue that even if I wanted to help that I don't really have the money. My child's father hasnt paid support in over a month. Not that child support goes for Alex anymore though.
Maybe this will be one of the events that makes him want to find work. One doesn't have to have lots cash to be happy. But it does make the world go around.
I am starting to save money for Stephen@ls feild trip to dc in 8th grade. It's a lot of money and I might not make it happen but I will try.
Does this make me a bad parent? Like I play favorites? Hope not. Stephen is in school and Alex is not.
