I have a 16 year old son that is breaking my heart. I am single mom, however, I have a live in partner (11) years and have a 9 year old child together. My son has progressively became more and more defiant. He has changed his friends, got kicked out of sports (I would not let him quite) I believe in good sportsmanship and explained that would let the team down. Obviously, he did not agree. His Grades are failing, using marijuana. When he is given chores simply says he forgot or will get to it but never does. If he does not like the rules he simply takes off for weeks. I have called police but there is nothing they can do but bring him home. I filed a exporta but only good for 7 days and I have to keep going to courthouse to file. I work and have 3 other children (2) still at home I cannot ignore. Any advise would be appreciated.
