My 16 year old high school junior son (turning 17 soon) is getting very violent, not going to school, doing drugs and pretty much doesn't care about anything. He was a very sweet boy, very athletic and highly liked. But he has been changing since he entered high school. Never did homeworks, lot of school absenteeism etc. He was caught by the cops last year for hanging around with friends smoking pot, but no charges. He was tested positive. He always had the habit of not respecting curfews or not doing any work. At school, at the beginning of this junior year he started dropping out of classes. We got alarmed and got together with the councilors and they recommended IEP after doing several tests. We were told, that he doesn't have learning disabilities but ODD. Couple of months back he was admitted in a behavioral correction center for acting out violently at home. He was there for a week and was also taking prozac as prescribed by the doctor in the facility. But he stopped taking after couple of weeks. He has been running out with friends late nights and some times doesn't come home for 2 days. Won't pick up the phone and won't tell us where he is. For the last 3 weeks has has hadly gone to school. He is particulary very violent on me (dad). My wife doen't want to call the cops again and again. At this stage he is completely failing the school. Too much of peer pressure and wrong company. We have another very sweet boy aged 11 and he is going through trauma looking at the showtings and violent behaviour, which breaks my heart. We are thinking of 2 options. 1) Put the misbehaving one into a therapetic school, ofcourse forcefully. Seems expensive for me to afford and I need to push myself. 2) Move to India where we are originally from and be closer to families. If we need to give some drug rehab provide there. Keep him there for couple of years and come bak to US for colleage studies. If this doesn't work out for whatever reason, put him in a boarding school in US. Ofcousre we need to figure out how to take him there without his consent. Big challenge. Confused. Challenged. Any comments?
