Dear Abby: My son’s wife passed away very recently. He works days, so I have been helping him by looking after his 15-year-old daughter, “Leyla.”
Leyla recently told her father that her boyfriend, “Dylan,” has asked her to vandalize things — TV, Blu-ray player, etc. — if her daddy enrolls her in a private school or moves her to another school closer to his company for a better education. Leyla’s grades aren’t good, and she spends most of her time chatting or texting with Dylan.
