Is not surprised....it didn't take long for my son to get arrested once he was out of the house.....I think for some kids they need to screw up several times before they get that society won't put up with their ways the way we will. So stay strong and hopefully the legal system will push him to get help.
You're doing right by letting him face his consequences. Sorry for what you're going through Pasa.. Have some comfort that he's not on the streets and could hit that much needed "bottom" to start climbing "up". ((hugs))
I am so sorry he was allowed out and now has chosen this for himself. Please know that you did ALL you could and this is not your fault. Regardless of your mistakes as a parent, there is pretty much NOTHING you could do or provide that could have changed this. The infrastructure and support for our kids just isn't there. They need way more than ANY family or parent can provide.
Let him deal with this on his own as much as the law will allow. Only way he will learn.
Pas my Difficult Child did the exact same thing at Wally World too. I eventually saw the receipt---$96 worth of chicken wings, bud light lime and an Xbox controller. A little boys toys for one night of fun...his mindset was clearly reflected in what he took.
But I was hungry mom.
Okay. And you wanted to play video games too right???
There is no rhyme or reason pas. I am so thankful he is somewhere...not on the streets...another chance for help...and he is safe and you are safe.
Arggghhhh...this life we lead on this board. So many things are just the same for all of us and there is great comfort in that.
I hope you can have a good day today knowing he is somewhere. Rest and refresh pas and we are here with you.
He is out of jail and has court date Nov. 5. I do not know if he is back on the streets or at the homeless shelter. I was able to get jail information from Vine. He has not tried to contact me. I do not know if the protective order has anything to do with that.
Coma, I do not know if they have mental health court or not.
There are services that he could take advantage of. He just wants to be free and live his life they way he wants with no rules. There have been sightings around town but he is avoiding making contact with anyone who might try to reign in him in. I have not heard anything from the attorney. Right now my focus is on myself and my safety as well as mu daughters and my mother.
