My I just found marijuana related subject on my 13yr old step son's facebook wall. I plan to punish him for making those comments on facebook, ie. restrict him from fb for 2 weeks, but my main concern is if he is smoking pot or not?
I do not want to make him feel like I don't trust him, but he has complete freedom at him mom's house. I don't know what kind of trouble he could be getting himself into at her house. He runs the neighborhood over there and is always hanging out at friend's houses. At my house, he is always supervised, so I know he is not getting into trouble here. He is at our house every other weekend and on Wednesdays. His grades have gotten progressively worse this year and he has been sent to the principal's office over 3 times for making "dumb" comments regarding girls. I do not know how to confront him on the latest facebook comments. I am thinking about doing a random drug test. Do you think this is necessary? Any help would be great. We told his mother about his posts, but she is unreceptive to punishing him or doing anything about it for that matter.- concerned step-mom
On a side note: I have been in his life for 8 years now, so I don't think it's a rebellion about his parent's divorce.
