16 year old stalking
01/12/2011 at 17:41 PM

My 16 yr old son broke up with a girl he dated for a yr in Oct. She initiated the break up and he is/was devestated. I've been monitoring his facebook/texting messages and I am getting more and more concerned that he is obsessing/stalking her. I am glad they parted just cuz they are both so young to be serious... which he was more than her. He will text her 10 times and she will answer once. She has not initiated 1 text message since Oct...he contacts her. He has 560 text's so far this month with 1/4 of those all to her. I emailed her and asked if he was bothering her to let me know but she said that he has been polite and that she cares about him. I think she only answers his texts because she doesn't want to hurt his feelings. It's been 3 months and I am worried about his obsession with her. My husband feels I am interferring with his life and that I shouldn't try to control his life. I feel I am parenting him and am concerned about his behavior. He doesn't talk to anyone about the breakup-not even his older brothers. Am I wrong to get involved? Any advice on how to help him? I've suggested he not text her and if she is interested she will contact him - which I would feel so much better about. Thanks!
