difficult child decided he was going to run away. I called police. They told him to work it out with me. They are filing report of ungovernable child. Family court. difficult child gets a jivie probation officer and drug tests. Any advice on what to do there? People have told me difficult child has girlfriend. 16. Dropout. Had sex recently and her mom caught them. Mom didn't care. Mom thinks they should get married. girlfriend was arrested recently for underage drinking. My difficult child goes to pick up her mother to bail her out cause mom is too drunk to drive. difficult child denies everything but finally admitted she is his girlfriend. I called girlfriend mom as well as adults at three other places he says he will go for shelter. Told all if he is on their property, he is a runaway and if anyone helps him, I will get cops on them too. I have his cell phone. Have changed passwords to emails, facebook, my space as well as his way to recover passwords. I know he can see her even though. I know if it isn't this girl, then another will be along. However a little time out may help him think more clearly. Going to high school tomorrow to tell counselor that if he isn't there, I wa t to be notified immediately. Thank God he won't be 18 until June, maybe just maybe he will grow up a tiny bit by then. I appreciate all your reponses on the other thread very much. I am reading each several times to ensure I get any ideas which may help!!!
