I am new to this forum so here it goes. I have an 18 yo drop-out difficult child, habitual liar, substance abuser, he's has been in out of juvenile facilities, boot camps, and alternative schools for years. Since his mother and I separated (and eventually divorced) almost 8 years ago, I lived everyday on the verge of an anxiety attack with stress and blood pressure levels in stroke range. Well I finally put him out for the second time for breaking written rules and now he's and mom-in-laws. I need to look at the option of detaching. Can anyone help?
