I've been going in circles - again - about "emancipating" Sonnyboy at the end of the month. And then I come back to the board and begin reading other's sagas and want to slap myself for being so upset that I'm kicking him out and what will happen. "Our" situation is nothing so severe as other's posts. I cut, paste and print enlightenment others have posted and reread it. I told him last week I would give him $$ for his apartment hunting. (Don't plan on telling him it's his tax money. I did give him some of it) Got up then nerve to ask him how it was going? He updates me on his legal situation. He has fines about $900 due to having cars impounded. That will take most of the tax money. Just found another citation for driving his cycle after sundown. He never did take the cycle tests. He's been driving the cycle because he didn't pay the car tickets, figures his cycle isn't connected to car tickets and they might not pull him over. And why spend his apt $ on tickets. Round and round and round we go.............. I guess I'm worried because he will never have a credit rating, how will he get an apt?? He has too many outstanding bills. And the big fear I'm grappling with is how bad is he going to behave. I know, I know, not my problem! Been going to Parent Alanon meeting. Really has helped me face some of this stuff. This week am gonna look for those who have done this and get their numbers. Been staying busy - those fears do creep in however.... and of course will he ever talk to me again???? Not that we talk now! Two weeks and counting! Thanks for listening!
