Hello, I have an 18 soon to be 19 year old son. I love him dearly. The past 1.5 years has been a roller coaster ride for my household. My son has been disrespectful of our home and us. He is quick to damage and destroy whatever is handy when he gets upset. We cannot have a conversation with him about anything without him blowing up at the smallest thing. We have given multiple chances for him to be honest not just to us but to himself and as well. He has stated that he wants to make things better, however that only lasts a short while. I have had to call the authorities but cannot bring myself to pressing charges.He is now with my mom, for a short time and I'm hunting for a program to put him in as we dont think we can do anymore for him to help him get back on the right path. His friends (the good ones) have mostly moved onto post secondary schools and we believe that has resonated with him on some level- though clearly not enough to encourage him to stick with finishing high school. He disappears mostly on the weekends and when he's home, sleeps all day and complains that he can't find a job or get to scholl as we've taken away his use of our car. Iam reading the posts on this site and though comforted that im not alone-- i really do feel alone. Im afraid of where my kid is heading and feel hopeless in helping him.
