I am so stressed right now, I am stuck in the middle of 2 men with too much testosterone - 1 being my husband and the other, my son. Not to mention that I am dealing with my own battle of losing my husband and losing my son. Before I decided to sit here and start typing, so many things were going thru my mind. Ive been dealing with so much for the past 2 months. I noticed that there are many parents that are dealing with the same thing. I dont know what happened to that sweet, innocent and loving son that I had! The day he turned 18, his whole attitude changed. He started with breaking his curfew and coming in later and later. Started smoking and he is never home and only comes home after we are already in bed. His grades are slipping and he is just too busy with his friends for anything else. He has become disrespectful to me and his father which is causing problems between our marriage. I am more of the sitting down and discussing what the problems are and how we can fix things type, my husband on the other hand does not give chances, he wants to kick our son out and teach him a lesson. He says if his friends are that important, then let them take him to school and let him move in with them! We got him a car for work and school and he has since lost his job becasue he doesnt have time and he is not doing too well in school - he is a senior this year but it seems like he is purposely jeopardizing all he has worked for to graduate in 2014. I am at my wits end. I feel like giving up but I just can't, I feel like if I dont keep at him, he will get worse. My health is deteriorating in the process though....
