I will try to keep this short but will start with a brief background. I was married for 20 years and we have 4 children. Oldest two are sons and youngest two are daughters. My oldest son was a challenge because of several disorders. The main ones being ADD and Sensory Integration Disorder (SID) (Sensory Integration Disorder). He is now 22 and although not doing everything I would wish for him he is a law abiding, working, living with roommates and I think he will finally figure everything out on his own. Because it was very hard to keep him on task and on track while living at home the others saw it and it trickled down to the next son. He picked up where the other left off when he moved out. difficult child#2 decided to challenge me even more. EVERYTHING is dramatic, EVERYTHING is wrong, EVERYTHING is a challenge. He got a girl pregnant at 16 (she was 18) and I (in my own opinion) handled it well realizing that "the deed was done" now is the time to teach him to be responsible. NOW trying to get to the current issue. He has 2 -3 dramas a week. Meaning if something doesn't go his way, he pushes button, argues, whines. etc. EVERY morning I have to go into his room at a minimum of 6 times to get him up. Disrupting and and starting my day off on a bad foot. In my opinion he is addicted to video games (HE bought the system, I did not). Latest thing was after not getting his chores completed after 3 days and my final warning to have it done by the time I got home Tuesday he was restricted from the video system for the evening and made to go out and complete one. OF COURSE. He blew up and cussed me, etc. Just went very badly. He left the house to go stay with a friend whose parents allow them to smoke and drink. He is 17. Dilemma:I don't want him here like he is. I love him dearly but his irrational behavior (had him tested for issues that could cause it - none) is destructive. His sister asked me not to let him stay or come back. I don't know where I stand legally. He has already said that if I send the cops after him he will RUN AND NOT LOOK BACK.
