HELP! My 16 yr old son is getting high, selling pot, drinking, doing terrible in school and has a crappy attitude. This has been happening off/on for about a year and a half now. My husband and I have taken his phone, xbox, grounded him, restricted his freedom (when he is not grounded)...you name it, we've tried it. In the past, he straighten up and stopped this behavior. Always short-lived but he did stop.
Over the last 2-3 months it has gotten worse. He is no longer remorseful, he openly tells us he will not stop, he has decided to quit hockey (which he has played for over 6 yrs), he has threatened to run away and his personality is becoming increasing 'cold'. I am afraid of what he may do to himself (when mad, he has said "maybe I should just kill himself"). He has not been violent toward us even once during this ordeal, yet I am also afraid of him hurting us or his sister (14 yrs old). Just snapping one night when he is drunk or high. I hate this!!!
I love and miss my son!! I hate this new person he has become...
