Well, I haven't been following Deneb's history, so there's admittedly much I don't know. I just don't want things to get worse, nor do I want to get a heated discussion going. This episode reminds me so much of what I went through during my college years. So how does one break a pattern?
I almost wonder if next time a class is skipped, if it wouldn't make sense to weigh pros and cons of telling mom.
Pro of telling mom: Confide in mom, full disclosure. Attention ?
Mom knows everything that's going on.
Cons of telling mom: Mom knows everything that is going on. Mom becomes upset, argument, Deneb becomes upset, situation escalates.
Pro of not telling mom: No triggerish arguement. Upset is limited to missing the class and whatever consequences might result. Must pick up on own without any prodding. Intrinsic responsability fostered. Confidence in being able to handle one's own affairs has opportunity to strengthen.
Cons of not telling mom: Keep a secret, must take full responsability alone without any outside prodding.
