I'm getting the ever so familiar guilt trip because my son doesn't have a car. He's in A School in CT. I just can't afford it right now and don't understand why he feels it's so important to have a car. I thought he was over thinking mom and dad were made of money, but that does not appear to be the case. Geez, he's going to be on a sub in a year, and that car won't help him then. As for now, he's making me feel guilty (as sons do). He's got a brand new laptop, an IPod, a cell phone. He needs to be studying the rest of the time. Seems to be spending a lot of time at the pubs. I don't like it and I'm a little worried. I know he's relishing his newfound freedom and independence, but I can only do what I can do. I thought his head was in a better place right now, and I still think it is. But why are we having this conversation now? Hmmmm.
