I teach sp ed at the high school where my son goes. We have always been super close. He volunteers in my class as well as volunteers for sp olympics. He has pretty good grades. But this senior year, one which I was so looking forward to has been a disaster. He was stoned when I came to take him for his 18th bday lunch. He's been fired from 2 jobs. He used my credit card to steal $300. I think he also stole from my class. His girlfriend had an abortion and this past Sunday on his way to his theatre performance at the high school he got pulled over for out tail light. He then got arrested for a pot pipe, evidence of, remnants of pot and a cooler full of beer. We are 14 days away from graduation. He is planning on going to college. I feel so hurt. I have given him everything. I always see the good and ignore the bad and now feel so lost. What do I do? We cancelled his graduation party. Do I still help him pay and prepare for college? I know not to take this personal but I can't stop crying. Seeing my baby in handcuffs in back of cop car is killing me. I want to be strong but it hurts so bad. I know there are worse situations but I can't shake this hurt. Plz help me.
