Hello everyone...I came across the site when looking for ways to handle my 18yr old son stealing from me. I found my watch in his room, I have also previously found gold jewelery in his room and taken it back. So I have a sick feeling now, after looking for other jewelery, that he has taken it. (Diamond earrings, a diamond necklace & a diamond watch) I dont know what to do. Right now he is visiting his father, whom he has not seen in over 10 years, and he got back into contact with after all this time. I pick him up from the airport tonight, and I dont know whether to confront him or to leave articles of teens stealing money & jewelry from their parents and them being arrested. I want to tell him not to come home, that he should stay where he is and live with his father. He has been a difficult child, a lot of anger issues (I account it to growing up without a father) He was supposed to go into the Marines in March, but in Feb got arrested for possession of marijuana, and now must serve 1yr probation, be clean and then the Marines may accept him back or he can try another branch of the service. I dont want to be a parent of the 30yr old loser still living home with his parents...but it breaks my heart to think he could of possibly really gone this far and taken very valuable jewelery from me. Do I get him to take a lie detector test? Do I throw him out of the house? Do I ship him back to live with his father that has been absent his whole life?
