problems with teenage son
I'm a widowed dad. My teenage son got kicked out of high school (Grade 11) due to lack of attendance, drug abuse. Got him enrolled in substance abuse programs, but to no avail. Got him enrolled in Life Skills courses, to no avail. Got him enrolled in a "special" school that deals with such problem kids - to no avail. Now he's become worse. He goes out all night (leaves the house before I get in from work)and crawls in at around 3.30-4.00 in the morning.He then starts cooking, the dog begins barking, I wake up and can't back to sleep. Can't reason or communicate with him. Does anybody have any suggestions? He's 16, so I have absolutely no idea how this is going to work out. Will a light bulb suddenly come on and he sees the light? Or will he be the cause of my early death? Help!
