Boy, what a perfect thing for him. He has talked about it all week. he isn't happy that he got put on the side he didn't want to be on. the topic is "internet filters'. I believe he is on the FOR side, and he really would like to be on the against side. He has debated with me since he could talk, so he should do well. We had some great time together yesterday on his 'modified' school day. We discussed theater, drama and debate. Have to pass along his view on abortion. He said it should be against the law. That if the girl is a minor it should be the girl's PARENTS responsibility to raise the baby since the girl is still the parents responsibility. (notice he said girl's) In some cases that would work. But, I've done my time. Someday I do look forward to grandchildren. To visit, and spoil, and send home. Then he thought about it a little and said, if the girl is 16 she should have to show proof that she can support the baby if she wants to keep it. Otherwise the court should put it up for adoption. Never did he mention the fathers role in anything. I told my easy child many years ago as a teenager, if he becomes a father, he will work..two jobs if necessary because he will support his child. (I never recieved a penny of support. easy child's father has not actually been with him for a visit since he was about 8 months old. 24 years ago) So, difficult child really has much maturing to do. waaaaay much maturing.
