My son lives with his father and this week he is here with me and the other night his father called and asked to talk to my son. a few minutes later he came back down upset and gave the phone back to me. I talked to my ex and he told me that he had his phone taken away because he came home higher than a kite 2 weeks ago and that day he also noticed that he was missing $100. I tried to talk to him about using drugs and wouldn't talk at all. I told him I was taking sides and that I was concerned and wanted to know what was going on with him. I did ask him about the $100 which he did show me he had when I picked him up on Friday afternoon. He told me got the money for mowing lawns he said one guy pays every 5 weeks that is why he had the $100 bill. I do believe he has been mowing lawns but I have never heard of anyone waiting 5 wks to be paid. Do I tell his dad about the $100 and have him question the neighbors to see if they paid him the $100 or do I just let it go. Also what can I do to get my son to talk to me about his drug use.
