    Interfering In Son's Life
    It's a totally frustrating dilemma. My 18 year old "college-attending" son is having an ongoing relationship with a H.S. girl who lives appproximately 3 hours away from school. Obviously this costs time and money to visit this girl. They seem to be keeping this relationship a secret from her Mom which I have advised him not to do. He is using up all his money to pay for gas and other expenses related to these visits. His grades are poor.
    We pay for his car insurance and have paid for half his car. Common sense says we should take the car off the road and even possibly pull him out of school next semester.
    At 18 he is legally an adult(?). How much should I interfere? Should I just let his life take it's course and hope for the best with school? I could call the girl's mother. I do have phone numbers from his dormitory phone bill.
    I hate to be the heavy but I am his mother. Do I have the right to interfere?
