My son is 17 and he has a girlfriend. At first we thought that would be a great idea. He is committed to taking his meds and his doctor says that he is on track to doing well for himself if he keeps up his routine. My son is very open and honest about his mental illness. He felt very comfortable with telling his girlfriend mom about him having SZ due to her working at a mental health facility. It backfired. His girlfriend mom is doing everything in her power to break them up. His girlfriend is 18 and understand for the most part his illness. However, her mom has bluntly told her that no one with common sense would date someone with schizophrenia.
My question is, has anyone else had bad experiences with their child dating?
