It was a little late yesterday and one of my son’s friend asked him to “sneak out” of the house for a drive (the boy has a licence). My son came and honestly told me about this. I gave him permission for half an hour to go out for the drive and that too only in our area. He agreed and returned home dot on time. I appreciated him for being honest.
My son is an adult and could have easily gone out without telling me, but I have reiterated it to my kids many times to be honest with me and their father. We should know about their whereabouts since its for their own safety and also to not take their freedom for granted.I gave my son some leeway yesterday and he kept his promise too.
Trusting children and open communication helped yet again.
