@grammarboy – I don’t think you have any control over whether your kid likes you or not and I didn’t say anything about liking you, that is irrelevant to this situation.
My point is that she won’t trust you. I don’t mean you, I do think you lean strong anti-abortion, but I know for a fact Sam does, and all of sam’s kids couldn’t help but know how she feels, because she’s very overt with her feelings, as am I.
The thing is, if the kid wants to do the opposite of what Sam would allow, if the kid wants to do the opposite of what Sam would allow without it causing a ‘major rift’ the kid will simply have to keep secrets and go around her because the kid can’t trust her.
my opinion, that’s all it is.
