Is it scandelous for my 18 year old son to hangout at his 17 year-old girl friend's house when her parents are not home?

is it a scandelouse situation for my 18 year old son to hang out at a 17 year old girls house when parents are not at home? No one at the house but the two teenagers.

Dear friend,

It certainly is not appropriate. At their age their hormones are strong and active. There have to be some protective limits. Parents are very much alone in this. Certainly, our culture is no help. If parents don’t try to save their children from themselves, no one else will. You are in our prayers.
