Yes, we too told my son to leave the house. We gave him a month to find a place. He had options but apparently they were not acceptable to him. Where is he now? I don't know, but from reading other posts and responses, he probably is okay. He's 20, 21 in next month. What I haven't figured out is how to get through my day. How to hide the tears. To stop thinking about the what-ifs. A therapist, but the right one. Not the one I saw recently, who specializes in troubled kids and families. He likes to talk about " back in the day".... I need to talk about how I feel, and what is likely to happen to my son. I know we did the right thing. As his brother said to me: He will now be welcomed to reality.
