Today, I’m trying something new.  Below is a common problem that parents face at one time or another. Dads (and Moms), I’m interested to hear what you would do…

On Monday, I’ll post my answer…

Q: A few weeks ago a couple came into my office to chat about their 14 year old daughter “Hannah.”  She was a stellar student, played three sports and had never given them any trouble. She was the oldest of their two daughters. They received a call from Hannah’s best friend’s mother who was concerned because her best friend said that Hannah had been sexually active with three boys over the past year. The girl’s parents were so stunned because to their knowledge, Hannah had never even hinted to them that she had a boyfriend.

When her parents asked Hannah whether or not she had been sexually active, she cried and denied it. They believed her until her best friend, desperate to help her, showed them a text that Hannah had sent a boy at her school telling him how much she enjoyed their sexual escapades. When her parents confronted her again, she came clean and told them that she indeed had been having sex with different boys They came asking for my advice.

What do you think Hannah’s parents should do? What would you tell them?
