I am new here not sure how this works but i really do ned the opinions of other parents. My 16 year old son has always had behavior problems. He has been on medication for ADD since he was about 10. Now he has been kicked out of school and has been smoking pot and cigarettes for about 2 years now. He has no friends. Has now resorted to stealing alcohol from us. He is not allowed to smoke in the house but in the past year has been caught smoking both pot and cigarettes in his room. Also stealing alcohol and drinking it in his room. We have been for councelling but that has not made a difference he just tells them what they want to hear. The doctor has changed his medication to anti-depressants but I have not found a difference. He hides out in his room all day and won't do anything to help around the house. He was recently caught doing drugs in my brothers basement and when confronted he said he didn't see a problem with it. He goes to other peoples (relatives) house and steals their booze and smokes and now that we tell him they don't want him back there, he blames us and tells us that its our fault. We spend many evenings talking to him about all these issues and it goes in one ear and out the other. We really are at our wits end with this kid. He has an appointment with a psyciatrist this month but I am thinking that it is not going to make any difference. I don't want to throw him out on the street but I don't know what else to do. We have given him so many chances and just continue to get it thrown back in our faces.
