I often wonder where I went wrong with him. His sisters are nothing like him! My oldest DD is 17, does very well in school (all AP and Advanced classes), plays tenor sax in marching and jazz band, does volunteer work, and is the youngest Assistant Manager at the restaurant she has worked at since she was 15 1/2. My youngest DD is 14, also a very good student, Very dedicated to her drumming. She practices it almost non stop. Other than being outspoken, maybe even mouthy at times, she never causes me any problem. So what did I do wrong with him????
Well its been 5 hours now, so guess I will try calling him again. I just hope he wakes up one day before its to late!!! I have given him the speech about all choices you make have consequences...but doubt that it has sunk in to his thick head!!!!
FWIW, I went through some truly awful times with my own son. He didn't straighten up until we (me, XH, grandparents, uncle) quit rescuing him. And yes, we put him out of the house. Hard, hard, hard but it was the right thing to do.
Hugs to you.
He says that a friend from where we use to live called and needed his help so that was where he was. Oh and he didn't have any phone service... do I believe him? NO! Do I think he is going to change? NO!
Here's a little something to make you laugh:
But I have to say, thanks to the great advice and stories I have read on here I dealt with him pretty well. I put my bitch boots on and when he got mad because I was yelling I got in his face and said "you have no right to be mad at me. What you did was your choice and it caused a lot of worry and pain to people who love you! So you will sit there and take all my anger, yelling and screaming until I feel better." It was late last night when I realized that what I said to him was stuff I learned from this site!
I'm so glad I accidentally ran across this place!
