My easy child daughter is dating a 17 yo that probably qualifies as a difficult child. I doubt that he's ever been evaluated, but definitely has anger management issues and is a chronic truant. He was recently charged with 2nd degree assault on his mother, a felony. Police released him after 12 hours. Mother understandably will not allow him back in the home. His father who shares joint custody will also not take him in. Police and school do not seem to care that he is homeless. I don't understand how nobody is legally responsible for his care. I gave him the number of a program that helps teens from broken homes. They don't want to help him because he has the felony charges pending and parents refuse to sign him into their program. Other than that, he does not seem willing to help himself. He won't call the phone number for some other state agency that the school gave him. He won't call other relatives to ask if he can stay there. He has some lame excuse why he can't call any of these people. I think he wants my daughter to convince us to let him stay with us long term, but we are not willing to do that. I don't know what else I can or should do for him. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks.
