If you had a very close friend, or boyfriend/girlfriend/life partner etc, what would it take for you to contact their parents if you were concerned about them?
If say, you had a friend who had suffered with depression, or self harm in the past, and they started showing signs of relapsing, and you had tackled them on the issue but hadn't succeeded in helping, would you speak to their parents? Presuming you knew them quite well, I mean? Or would you see it is being out of your hands?
I don't know why I'm asking really, it just occured to me that with all the various problems I've had with ex boyfriends [or to be more exact, the problems they had with themselves] I never once passed over responsability to their family, but bore the brunt of it myself.
If you were the person involved, would you be angry at the person who'd contacted your family? I suppose it would depend on the circumstances as to how rationally you reacted.
How's everyone's evening? :)
