My Mom Is Dating Again
Ron, I never thought I'd say this, but my 67-year-old mom has a boyfriend.
About the Guest
Yes, adult children have thought about their parent dating again, but once it's real, it's just bizarre. Sometimes their roles change. The child becomes the dating coach, telling their parent how to ask for a date and to guard against sexual temptation. Ewww. And all the while the child is feeling frightened about how the family's going to change again. Yes, many questions will need answers. So neither generation should make any assumptions. This is a family matter and you need to talk.
