Sounds like a fairly typical 16-year-old. Pity our nextdoor man is behaving so badly --- he IS old enough to know better. Would she listen to anyone else ( some other relative, perhaps ) ? WOuld she consider agreeing to see a counsellor ? Sometimes such kids need to burn their fingers and discover that mom was right about fire --- thopugh I recognize that in the age of AIDS, they don't recognize that those first burned fingers could provide a death sentence.
