"How do we get our son to see that his girlfriend is using him?"

It's the holiday season... which means extra expenses. But what do you do when your teenage son or daughter wants to spend a lot of money on his or her partner? For this week's Tips on Teens, we received a question from a dad who isn't sure how to handle this situation. Here's the question:

"My son is convinced that he needs to buy his girlfriend something really expensive for Christmas. He’s afraid she’ll be upset with him if the gift isn’t something really nice. My wife and I think it’s pretty ridiculous and we know this girl is just using him. How do we get him to see that?"
