I have two 17 year olds. His 17 year old best friend lives with us and his gf. My son is so disrespectful, rude, mean, lazy, and I can't take it any more. Last week, he got angry and broke my 3,000 computer. I called police but I did not press charges. Tonight he threatened to beat up his brother at school. He is doing drugs and has pot head friends at the house constantly. I am very sick. I just had surgery and have wounds that won't heal. It's horrible! I feel like I'm living a nightmare with all these teenagers!

Wow, I'm sorry you're having such a tough time with your son and his friends. It definitely sounds like you may need to set some boundaries here-especially if you feel you and your other son are not safe. And it seems like you're trying to if you called the police at some point. But maybe you need to sit down with your son and explain to him what you expect from him if he continues to live with you (and let him know whether or not you're OK with his friends staying). If he's not respectful of that or won't follow your rules then you may need to look into somewhere else for him to stay. For instance, maybe some sort of residential therapy program or something like that? You could talk with a counselor (maybe even the school counselor?) about what's been going on and see if they have any suggestions. They also could probably help you know what to do if refuses to go. But I hope you're able to find some support with this situation. Let us know how things go...
