Honesty IS the Best Policy
He just had his first serious girlfriend, which is a totally new experience for me. He's just starting with the whole dating thing, but I'm putting him out there with as much knowledge as I can. I want him to know how certain decisions affect his life and that if he makes a bad decision, he'll be compromising his dreams, not mine. I've also been very honest about teen pregnancy. I've told him that we would work it out, but that doesn't mean he's not going to be held accountable. I'd expect him to be a dad and do what it takes to give his kids a good life.
Being honest doesn't mean glorifying my failures and mistakes. I try to do it in a way that makes my son know that I understand what he's going through. Because you can play the denial card with a teen and say, "I never did that!" But if you're found out, you'll be a liar and a hypocrite.
