Now and then, I'll come across a post intended as humor that really bugs me.When I look at what the post is really saying, it's just passive-aggressive repetition of the tropes and assumptions that I don't want to include in my parenting.I will offer you pamphlets about how to get help because I want you to get help. If it is an ongoing problem, you come tell me and I'll let him know that I don't think it's acceptable, either.
I may call the police or your parent(s) if you're breaking the law or a threat to my son's health/wellbeing. If he is not respecting you as an individual, you tell him so. I raised him to treat others with respect and empathy. If he ever fails to treat you with respect and empathy, remind him of his upbringing.
I'll try to make sure you're paid in kind. If you show up at my house scantily clad, I will probably offer you a judgment-free cardigan for your comfort.
Please understand, I just want to make sure that you don't get cold. If I act like a harpy, you don't have to like me.

So when I saw a post entitled "Rules for Dating My Son", I felt compelled to respond with the sort of message I do want to pass on.
