Dear Agony Aunt
My son has been acting very strangely lately but no one in the family knows why. I want to ask him about it but I don’t really know how. What should I do to get the truth from him?
Dear Lord Montague,
Leave your son Romeo alone - he needs his own personal space because HE IS A FREE MAN!!!!!!
Dear Lord Montague,
Just have some father-son time. Get to know him then he will tell you the secret.
leave him alone its his life people need privacy
dude. not cool. PRIVACY. he's a teenager, they all go through that faze.
you should have to talk to him
You should let him come to you. You should tell him that if he needs to talk to anyone that you are there for him and will never judge him. He will then feel he can open up to you and that he has someone to turn to.
You HAVE to talk to him. Fathers should talk to their sons. I don't think there is a right way or wrong way to do it. He'll never tell you if you don't ask and show you are interested.
"What further woe conspires against my age?"
married to Lady Montague
I am Lord Montague, the husband of Lady Montague and the father of Romeo. I have an on-going feud with Lord Capulet , the head of another rich and important household,. This dispute has led to many fights in the city and I am concerned that Romeo is part of them. My wife and I ask our nephew, Benvolio, to talk to Romeo and find out what he is feeling. I am devastated when Romeo is banished from the city for killing Tybalt. It is my wife who suffers most and she eventually dies grieving for the loss of our son. When I find out about Romeo’s death in the Capulet’s tomb, I decide to end our feud once and for all and offer to raise a statue in honour of Juliet.
