We've finally reached the end of our rope with difficult child. He's regularly drinking, ignores curfew, failed Junior year, drives drunk and now I caught him having sex with his g/f in our house at 3:30 a.m. (he regularly sneaks kids into our home while we are sound asleep.) All of his former friends, except one, have abandoned him because he is so verbally abusive to them. He will be 18 in mid-June and has informed us he can "do whatever he wants." We are going to put our large home on the market and move into a small rental for a year. He's going to have a few options: either keep living with us in the small place, under strict rules with strict consequences; go into a wilderness school followed by transitional school; or move out and support himself. In other words, the party's over. I also need to find an experienced psychologist or psychiatrist in Dallas/Fort Worth to get us family or individual counselling to help us with family issues and his nicotine/alcohol addiction. (yes, I've finally accepted that he's either got an alcohol addiction or he's working aggressively towards having one soon). A complete neuropsychologist evaluation is probably in order too. Does anyone have recommendations for professionals who could help us in the Dallas area? We've been in counselling before, but we ended up with someone who just let difficult child cry and complain about how he's not been parented correctly ... then he dropped out of counselling and used all that he learned against us for two years. Thanks for any recommendations for specific people/programs, or any tips on finding a good one. I am heartbroken, sick to my stomach, completely stressed out and can't even sleep in my own home. I have to take decisive action ASAP.
