Hi Everyone! I am new to this site and really not sure how things work. I am searching for anyone that can give advice as well as help me to stay positive. Here is my story. I am a divorced mother of 2 boys 18 & 21. The 18 yo lives with me and the 21 yo lives with my Ex. My 18 yo is very difficult with everything! He smokes weed every chance he gets. Quit school last Nov. in his senior year and is verbally abusive with me when he doesn’t get what he wants. It’s a constant battle for me and I am always walking on egg shells around him. There are times I don’t even want to go home. He needs a rude awakening or to hit rock bottom soon! Or I am going to have a nervous breakdown. Everyone says kick him out but as a mom that is hard to do. As much as I dislike him, he is still my son and I love him. Some advice on how to cope would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
