Dear Webby

Dear Webby,

My parents, with your help, are ruining my life! Thanks a lot.

After writing you, my mom called the mother of my boyfriend's friend and asked all kinds of things about the after party. I'm surprised my boyfriend hasn't cancelled on me.

I guess my mother liked her answers and I am going to be able to go. I am embarrassed to meet this woman now. She probably thinks I'm some kind of wimpy little momma's girl.

Not happy with you or my parents

Dear Not happy,

Webby is unhappy that you are unhappy.

It may be difficult to understand now but you are very lucky to have caring, concerned parents. They want you to have a good time - but to be safe. Remember they didn't forbid you to go. They checked it out and gave it the okay.

I doubt your boyfriend is as upset as you are and he probably respects your parents for their involvement. I'm sure the people having the party are also glad to hear from other parents.

It might be nice if you introduce yourself when you get there and perhaps bring the mother a box of candy and thank her for having the party there.

Some less cultured guests might just mingle and forget their manners and the kindness of the parents having the party. Let Webby know how it all pans out.

In the big scheme of things this is a drop in the bucket, and like Webby always says, "don't sweat the small stuff". If you don't make it a big deal no one else will.

Go enjoy, have fun and if not now, someday you will thank God you have such caring parents. You will also thank your parents one day.

No need to thank Webby.
