HI, Im new here so firstly hello to everyone. I'm 44 and mother of 4 children girl aged 20 and boys aged 17, 12 and 8. I've been having a lot of trouble with my 17 year old recently with him being out all hours drinking, smoking weed not doing anything round the house and refuses to get part time job (he's at college term time). recently we had a big argument after me making his friends go home at 12.30am and i ended up chucking him out. I just don't know how to control him anymore he's a big 6'4" lad and thinks he's grown up. he wrecked the house when we were away and we got no appoligies and he didn't seem to think he'd done anything wrong.
sorry about the ramble but does anyone have any good ideas?
