how do i get my teenage son to break up with a girl?
my son is only 14 and has been getting really serious with his girlfriend, seeing her everyday, no one else, being there for 8-10 hours and quite frankly, she's weird. she is very quiet, can hardly ever leave the house, and i do not want her trapping him and preventing him from being a kid! how do I get them to break up?

thank you all for the advice. i know i am the parent, i have tried limiting it and have talked to the parents. they will not let their daughter to our house/neighborhood, even with me, becasue he says "i need to always keep an aye on my little girl" i am dealing with wack jobs here and i feel like i am losing control. my husband is "around" and is his father, we've been married 15 years. i used to drive him and got sick of it so he started riding his bike. just got stolen last night ($350 bike) and the other day he came home with a black eye. they live in a bad neighborhood. so my son is always going there, its a safety issue, etc. and i told the father if the only way they can see eachother is to come to your house, then maybe they shouldn't see eachother. I told him that's my baby the same way your daughter is yours and he said well then I need to take care of that on my end. he is not budging. so i said well then they should break up. and he said for me to do what i had to do but he wasn't going to have any part in making his baby upset! these people do not compromise! how do i make it stop, to have them not see eachother anymore? i am afraid deep inside of him running away or something even worse. these teens are spazes nowadays! i did talk to him about sex, who knows if they listen! i don't care if they date, it's just too serious and too odd of a situation. she is not "good" for him. I want it to end!!!!!!!
