i just regained my parental rights of my 16 year old after 5 years! I have never parented a teen and i wasnt parented as a teen either. so i have NO IDEA what i am doing.When he wasnt in my care, and shortly after coming into my care, he has been caught drinking. at school at home. When he wasnt in my care, he was headed down the wrong path. Now he thinks he deserves a clean slate.but i can trust him to tell me the truth. I only have 2.5 years left to make a posative enfluence in his life. He and i also have ADHD. He has ODD with that. I joined this sight to hopefully get some idea of what to expect out of an average teen and maybe get some good feedback.
thanks so much
