My 16 year old has a boyfriend (18) that just went through recovery for heroin (smoking) addiction. None of us knew he was using or had a problem.
My question is What now? He is a great guy that I believe will be successful, but this is all new to us. Sure, we have family that have been affected by drugs, but never this close.
He is her first dating experience, she is trusting,and a really great kid.
What sort of boundaries should she put in place?
What expectations/restrictions should we have?
Is it true they should not have romantic relationships for a year?
