Welcome, Elisa. I encourage you to change your screenname to something more private. This is a place where you can talk to other parents who understand. I'm sure your son was angry because you asked him to do work. If he's using drugs, you can expect more anger from him. None of this is your fault. He is making bad choices for his life. As much as we would like to for our children to always make good choices, sometimes they have to experience life on their own terms. That might mean that they do some incredibly stupid things.


100% better than I was but not at 100% yet
Sorry you are here Elisa

There is a wealth of knowledge here from parents who have been through it. Please give us more details about your son and his history and who else lives in your home.

Hang in there.

Welcome Elisa, I agree that you should change your name to something that does not identify you. I am sorry that you are finding your son difficult. What habit is your son supporting? You were right to kick him out, he can't keep stealing form you and mistreating you. Has he been in any legal trouble? Is he working?

I believe he has to go to rehab or leave your house. If he stays he will keep stealing. Things will go missing, cause he will pawn them. You work to hard for your things, your money, to be taken from you. Our son did this to us soo many times. I am sorry you have to deal with this.
