Hi, I am trying to run an ERGM but the size of coefficient for the edges term is super big. I know there is something wrong but have no idea of how to find or fix the error. Will appreciate all your help

Below is the summary of my model:

Call:

ergm(formula = IL2013.n1 ~ edges + absdiff("age") + gwdsp(0.5,

fixed = T) + gwesp(0.5, fixed = T) + nodecov("rating") +

absdiff("rating") + nodecov("age") + nodefactor("independent"))

Iterations: 2 out of 20
