My difficult child is 17, almost 18, he is in an Residential Treatment Center (RTC) and due to come home in Nov. I just have some questions for the more experienced. Bare with me please. difficult child has has 2 home passes in the past month, part of his level, and when he is home I really see no change to his behavior. Still going wanting to hang out with the wrong crowd, totally recking the bedroom he shares with his younger brother, not wanting to spend any time with anyone except those dead beat freinds, and this last time I saw him bring the anger back when I suggested we do something different when he's home the next time. Something he hates-camping. (only over night just to have some family time) We were to go this past visit but the weather was crapy. Now my questions.....1. Did you ever feel, even though you love your child that you are not wanting them to come home? 2. Am I a horrible person for wanting him to stay until he turns 18 (May)? 3. Would I be wrong in putting him out once he turns 18 if things are the same? I really don't think with the way he STILL is after 6 months he and I can live in the same house. We have balance now and even him come home for even a weekend just throws everything off. His brothers (19 1/2 and 13 1/2) don't even want to be here when he comes home for visits. I hate myself for feeling this way but I don't know if I can deal with this anymore. This has been going on for the past 5 to 6 years. Any advice at all would be helpful.
