Hi Everyone. New here, it's my first post. I am the Mom of a 14 & 3/4 year old son, Tim. I knew Tim had been sneaking out, riding his bike about 5 miles one way to see a 'girl' sometime between 1.00 am - 5.00 am, usually on weekends. I nabbed him coming in the door on a couple of occasions, and of course he tried to lie to me and tell me he had just been in the garage wah wah wah, and so on. Well, tonight a hysterical mother of one of his friends is pounding on my door. I am then informed that my son has been taking our cars in the middle of night. Not only taking our cars for a drive but making rounds to his friends houses and they are sneaking out with him and riding - not just around the block but for 20 - 30 mile one way f'n trips. Oh my god. So - he has lied to me so much that I don't even know who he is anymore. Seriously. I don't even know my own son anymore. When did this happen. How in the hell did it get by me so slyly? In addition to the car thing he was also in possession of a 'bag' of pot which he and his friends evidently smoke while in our car. Tim was kicked out school in December and is now attending Alternative school for 8th graders. A tough school. I don't know what to do at this point. I'm afraid to even close my eyes and sleep. I've done the take everything out of his room and ground him routine. No phone, no computer. I'm at a loss. I'm tired and at this point I'm speechless. speechless.
