Are there any success stories out there? My difficult child is 18 today. His diagnosis is ADHD/ODD and bi-polar. He won't take his bi-polar medications. He smokes pot, drinks, has stolen from us and is on probation for destruction of property and disturbing the peace (which, of course, is all our fault for calling the police in the first place). He has at least gotten his GED, but absolutely refuses to get a job. He is breaking all of his conditions of probation and has a meeting with his probation officer tomorrow. My husband is probably going to meet with the P.O. today to let her know everything our difficult child has been doing since their last meeting. It is so frustrating. People keep saying...oh, he'll turn out just fine...you've raised him right and he'll turn around. I don't believe it. I see no light at the end of the tunnel at all. Is there hope?
