    1. this boy needs serious counseling. he actually believes he's talking directly with god, and that god is answering him. definite case of delusion going on here. unfortunately, in his circle (and yours, by default), this is considered the norm. i fear we'll next hear of this young man as he's being sought for questioning, in a series of bizzare roadside murders, with a religious twist.

    2. sounds like your daughter was lucky, he broke it off with her, and is far less likely to become her stalker. unfortunately, that still leaves all the other kids in town, and their parents, to deal with.

    you're right, as a parent, there is only so much you can (and more importantly, should) do, to protect your children. part of the growing up process is learning how to deal with the downside of interpersonal relationships. you're there to offer advice (mostly ignored), and provide a safe landing zone when they fall, which they will.

    with children of my own (though older), i share your pain. oh, if it will help, it only gets worse!
