Notes from Schochoh: I don’t envy my friends who have teenagers. Things seemed simpler when I was a teenager but maybe that is the nostalgia talking. I couldn’t help my eighth grade godson, Will, with his math because I couldn’t understand it, so I taught him to play poker instead. I know that poker won’t help him get into a good college, but it is a skill that I have found useful on occasion.
The problem with teenagers is that they have had the birds and bees talk, now they want to implement what they have learned.
My friend Meri’s sixteen-year-old son had a steady girlfriend his freshman and most of his sophomore year in high school. Meri noticed that he would come home with red, chapped lips that led her to believe her son and his girlfriend weren’t studying math or playing poker. She talked to him and explained that such heavy kissing could lead to other things that could change and potentially ruin his life. She suggested that he and his girlfriend talk more, find other hobbies, and generally dial down the whole kissing thing.
About a month later, the girlfriend broke up with my friend’s son. Meri gave him a few days and then asked what happened. Her son explained that he had relayed the talk he had with his mother about the kissing. It seems like the girlfriend didn’t much care about talking and hobbies so she kicked my friend’s son to the curb. If he wasn’t ready for a more adult relationship, she would find another sixteen-year-old boy that was.
Of course he was heartbroken for a couple of weeks. Heartbreaks hurt more but heal faster in teenagers than they do in adults, so my friend’s son was fine. He just learned a hard lesson at an early age. It is probably better that he doesn’t know that relationships become more difficult as you get older. Teenage relationships are more to the point. The teenagers haven’t learned the games played by adults. Adult relationships do involve more games and nonsense that I feel is necessary. Maybe we should be more like teenagers. Don’t pull any punches, get right to the point, and say what is on your mind. It is a much more honest way to get through life and relationships. And for goodness sake guys, if a woman summons the courage, which isn’t always easy; to call and ask you out, have the common courtesy to call her back.
