A couple of your son’s friends have been caught flinching CDs and DVDs from his collection. You go and have a talk with the parents of the offending children and things are sorted out.
BUT what do you tell your own son who has never faced such distrust and betrayal in friendship?
What do you answer to his anguish “but they were my friends”?
Saying “no they were not” seems so inadequate, saying “you can’t trust people” seems so negative, saying “you did not care for your things” is outright insensitive….
