In the course of the conversation, he told me his mother had his social security card but he still needed a new one because she had signed his name to it several years ago. I asked why and he didn't know and for the life of me, I cannot imagine why she would have done this.
Anyway, I finally told my boy to get the number and we are going to run a credit check on him. I didn't want him to doubt his mother but, as I shared before, when DH and I were first together, we had to pay off an old phone bill, about $800.00, that his mother and stepfather had put in his name.
Is there any logical reason a parent would sign their child's social security card that I am not thinking of?
