Ask A Therapist Onlineson’s breakup
Christine asked 12 years ago

our son is breaking up with his girlfriend whom we have met and like. It is a messy breakup as she is very upset and it is affecting her school (university) and her work apparently. He is very upset that she is so upset but wont change her behaviour that is causing the breakup. both my husband and I have been in tears (not in front of him) about it. Is there anything we can do. I have advised my son to see a counsellers at the university and he said they were just other students
