The last time he stepped outside was the last day of school when we finished early in March. Since then, he hasn't been allowed out at all. Not even for a walk or to go to the shop, even when the 'daily exercise outing' was a thing.

My friends and I are concerned because it's been a good 4 months. His dad is paranoid because of COVID-19 (none of his family are high risk) and would get angry if he left the house, even in a month's time.

I just don't know what to do.
Thoughts???

I think it is. Locking someone up isn’t good for their physical or mental health, especially when nobody in the family is really at risk. It’s also completely hysterical and irrational.

I assume ur a teenager. If so, his parents probably know that if he goes out to see you or any of his friends, all social distancing rules will go out of the window.

I've been inside this whole time, and I am fine. I have not seen any of my school mates at all.

I think you know what the person you were replying to meant. If your under a certain age, you parents have the right to restrict your movements as long as there is no abuse involved.

Parents don’t always make the right choices and there are a lot of awful parents. Calm down.
