Okay - Police just came to my house and took my 14 year old away in handcuffs. husband is at the station now. Son went into an abandon house with another kid in the neighborhood. Son did not take anything but other kid did. Policeman said since he is 14 and this is his first offense he will more than likely be released to my husband tonight. He will have a court date and community service hours. OMG........I can't believe I am even having to sit her and type this. I am so angry at him and at the same time scared for him. I hope this scares the living out of him. It has me. I have kept my kids out of schools in this district for 14 years. This year I thought he could handle going to the local high school. One of the reasons I kept him away so long is because of the kids in this neighborhood. When he was going to the other schools he only hung around the few kids that live nearby. I should have never let him go there. I feel like I have failed as a mother. I should have sent him somewhere else. I don't want to freak and make a hasty decision but my first reaction is to pull him out and homeschool him. Please pray for us.
