What should I do about my sons 13-year-old girlfriend being kicked out?

My son has a thirteen-year-old girlfriend who was recently kicked out of her house(that’s what she’s told us). She’s a good kid from what we can see. She’s said she’s not being abused in anyway, but she refuses to go home. I sent her home two days ago with the advice to listen and talk things through with her parents. She ended up back at my house again later that night. Her parents speak Spanish only and cannot read or write in any language. There’s a language barrier. I’ve reached out to her sister, who’s in her 20’s and speaks perfect English. No response. They know exactly where she is. I’m not really sure what I’m supposed to do. Is this a liability? Why are her parents not trying to retrieve her? I told my son she needs to go home. She seems terrified

Get the child and protection services involved immediately. Either something is very wrong or they are trying to dump that kid on you. No normal parent just let’s a kid leave.

Child services or police, it’s illegal to kick a child out at that age, and illegal to harbor a runaway should they claim she ran away.

Where r u located ,get a hold of your pd

You cant take on that responsibility with out help regardless, even if she stayed with you paperwork has to be done so legally you can take her to the dr or schooling decisions, it’s a weight that sounds like you’re not quite prepared for.

I would not be taken her in…for several obvious reasons. She must have other family she can go to. I’d want to know why/what the reasoning was…maybe they think she’s too young to have a boyfriend.

Stay out of it, but maybe call Children’s Services in. your area. They can check on the home situation.

Send her home your son has a curfew, nothing for you to do. Unless you want to be a grandma within the next 2 years

Take her home with the police,

Do NOT let her live with your son - it will escalate problems in your own household.

By all means let her move in so you can be a grandma soon

All they have to say is she ran away (it’s illegal for them to kick her out) and you’re then harboring a runaway which is a crime. I would call the police to come and escort her home
