Man: Oh, I've been fine, but I'm having some trouble with my son.
Woman: Tell me all about it.
Man: Oh, he's 14 and in the past few months, he's become quieter and a bit secretive. He locks himself in his room and I think he's running around with the wrong crowd.
Woman: Oh, I see. What makes you think that?
Man: Well, he's become friends with a couple of older boys who are in a band. And one night last weekend, he came home really late, way past his curfew.
Woman: Really? What happened?
Man: He told me that his friend's car broke down and they had to walk home.
Woman: I see what you mean. I understand why you're concerned. Have you tried talking to your son about it?
Man: I haven't yet. I just keep hoping it's just a phase he's going through.
Woman: You may be right, but it doesn't hurt to find out more about what's going on in his life.
Man: You're right. I should talk to him. Sometimes, it's not easy being a parent. Thanks. It helps to get it off my chest. You're always so easy to talk to.
Woman: I don't know about that, but my door is always open. Stop by anytime.
