Spence as you and the boy get along fine "most times " and you do talk to each other he may like to do a bit of private chatting to friends male and female at his age without mum looking over his shoulder all the time. If the postman delivered a letter addressed to him would you open it ? ( I dont want an answer to that ) Anyway it's all down to trust and giving some freedom think back to your teens (if you can remember that long ago ). and think how you would feel. I may have spoken out of turn so sorry if I'm out of court.
Off to Chamonix in the morning with Mrs and Scott for about 9 days so if he manages to get round the UTMB we can all chill out for a week after. So all play nice and will look in when I get back.
