Dear Coleen

My boyfriend and I have been for a of months now. I’m generally a -model teenager. I don’t drink, I get good grades and I am very responsible.

However, a few nights ago, I drank at a ’s house and got a little drunk and texted my boyfriend telling him I was tipsy.

The conversation then got a little heated from my end.

I found out today that his mum read my messages and I’m not sure how to handle it because I really don’t want her to have a negative impression of me.

Like I said, this never happens and now she’s going to think badly of me for this one slip-up.

Any advice would be great.

Coleen says

I wouldn’t panic too much – his mum was a teenager once too. We’ve all been there and done it.

I don’t know what you said in the text – whether it was angry heated or heated – but you’re probably worrying about it more than she is.

But if it’ll make you feel better, the next time you see her just say, “, I’m sorry you read those tipsy messages. It’s the first time I’ve been drunk and I’m not usually like that. I hope you don’t think badly of me”.

If it were my son, firstly I wouldn’t read his texts, but say I did, I’d just think, “OK, they’re just teenagers”, but I would appreciate it as his mum if you mentioned it and offered me an apology. It would make me think you were a nice girl.

You’ve learned a lesson – don’t drink and text. It can get you into so much trouble!
