DEAR AMY:

“Grounded Mom” was freak­ing out be­cause a fam­ily from church gave their son a gift of sky­div­ing for a high school grad­u­a­tion present.

Amy, most high school grad­u­ates are 18 years old. The gift of the sky­div­ing ex­pe­ri­ence was not the mother’s to op­pose.

Whether her son went was none of her busi­ness. I think she owes her son and the other fam­ily an apol­ogy for be­hav­ing so badly. — ANON DEAR ANON: This mother is also go­ing to have to learn how to let go.
