Calf Love
A Memory Man Production

Your fourteen year old son Lewis is basically a good and trustworthy kid but since he became hormonal over a year ago his general attitude has deteriorated and he seems to earned more hidings than in his entire preceding life.  

This year you have taken him, for the first time, with you and your wife on your annual cruise.

On Sailaway Night you share a restaurant table with, and strike up a friendship with an English couple who had a pretty and charming daughter, Julie, about Lewis's age.  You arrange to meet up with them the next day (at sea) and the two youngsters get on famously and spend most of the day in each other's company, mostly by the pool where the high end digital camera you bought for Lewis's fourteenth birthday (He has both an interest and talent for photography) worked overtime when he had such an attractive and willing model at his disposal.  By the end of the first day the two had become a unit, roaming the ship as though tied together by an invisible cord.  

Knowing your would be lady-killer son you took him aside that evening to tell him that their friendship was fine so long as it stayed public, warning him that if they strayed into one of their cabins or some dark corner or got into any sort of compromising situation you'd take the skin off his ass.  When you mentioned this to Julie's parents, her father laughed and said we've told her the same sort of thing, her mother rather grimly adding "I haven't packed my wooden spoon this time but I'm pretty good at improvisation."

A few days later Lewis was showing you the shots he'd taken on the previous day's shore excursion and as he came to the end of the series flicked quickly across The Picture.  You noticed it and made him bring it back.

"Where and when was that taken?"

Nervously he replied "It was a self timer shot last night up on the top sun deck"

Then catching your look he went on "It was nothing like that Dad - honest, I swear it - OK we did kiss a bit but most of the time we were just talking; we are going to write to each other after.  We weren't sneaking off like you said; there were lights up there and a few people kept coming up, it was just so nice and quiet."

Then as he went on you had to do a double take to ensure it was still your son talking. "Dad" he said wistfully "It was a lovely starry night and so quiet and peaceful up there, Julie just snuggled into me as we watched the moonlight dancing across the waves........... It was magic" he sighed.

You believed Lewis's explanation.  Technically, you thought, he had probably breached your restriction but you'd watched their relationship develop beyond mere physical and sexual attraction to something much deeper.  You'd seen how comfortable and relaxed they were in each others company and could understand their desire just to be together away from the crowd.  

You saw no need to deploy your belt on this occasion but you were left with a dilemma.  You'd socialised with Julia's parents and were pretty sure that if you shared your knowledge Julia's mother would go ballistic, Julia would likely to get roasted with her wooden spoon alternative whatever that was, and almost certainly her friendship with Lewis would summarily be ended.

You didn't want to risk that, the ruining of their holiday - but they are young, hormonal, immature and exhibiting all the symptoms of calf love .............. yet there are still six more days to go before they once again become separated by 3,000 miles of ocean.

What will you say/do?

I'm going to warn Lewis how near he is ( to coin a phrase ) to sailing too close to the wind and that he needs to ease back a little if not for his sake but for Julie. We want them both to have good memories of this trip and not bruised backsides. I think this might already be too much for Julies mum and I won't be able to cover for the kids if it goes any further. There will be a hiding for Lewis and probably julie and chaperoning Embarassed  for the rest of the trip if it goes beyond this.

Men have set up a bunch of rules purporting to rule as to when young people are old enough to father and bear children. However mother nature, or if you like God ("go forth and multiply"!) has other ideas, and mother nature has always trumped man's so called law!

It would be wrong for me to try to interfere with God's expressed Will so I will say nothing to my son and his new girl! I will however try to distract Julie's parents so the two young lovers can find some privacy!

I don't fully agree with that but lets say I do. I might as well schedule our family session on Maury Povich now.

I can't see that Lewis and Julie did anything beyond their limits. They were on the sun deck, others walked by and interacted with them. There is no mention of keeping the "rents" informed of their whereabouts so that wasn't a violation. Frankly the only thing I want to add is for them to keep us informed/ask us if they can go up on deck, etc.

I too will warn him about how very close to the edge he is sailing. I can't let him think I condone his going any further however, and I will be quite firm about that. I will have a frank and open discussion with him regarding the possibility of fatherhood and how it will impact his young life though I won't restrict him from further visitation.

I trust him sufficiently to be a "gentleman" in his relationship and I will let him know that I understand the 'magical' component of young love, after all, I've been there too! As long as I am satisfied that he can maintain a semblance of self control I'll let hi continue until the end of our cruise. Hopefully this will be a memory that will last a lifetime without the consequences that last a lifetime.

That looks like a perfectly innocent picture taken in a public setting. I can't imagine why anyone would get upset about it.

That said, I'm in agreement with Dimitri and Katz. It may be worthwhile having a "reminder talk", but I don't think anyone did anything wrong in either the spirit or the letter of the "law".

I'm with Stoney on that I don't see anything wrong with the picture.

I will remind him of the facts of life.

I think I have to be realistic. He's a young man now and quite an attractive one. Whether it's there on the cruise ship or at home, girls will like him and he will like them. I'm going to make sure he always has a condom in his pocket.

Nevertheless I expect tears at the end of the cruise...

I'm in agreement with those that think this innocent and see no problem. I also think that talking with kids this age about these things is a good idea, but I don't think making threats of punishment is either effective or desirable.

Take him to the ship's doctor and get him a vasectomy. No babies... problem solved!!

(Stevie hopes that everyone realises that he's joking and really feels that there's really nothing wrong with a little cuddle in a public place)...  Very Happy
