My 18 year old has no responsibility in the house, refuses to take any. He wants to hang out with his friends but will not tell us where he is going and with whom. Infact he Till the age of 14 he was a very easy going child.
I know that since he is 18 he is legally considered an adult, however, I just cannot let him go I have got no clue who his friends are and I see danger when a group of teenagers are together. Whenever we try to advise him, he thinks that we are just being over protective and feels he has more common sense and better judgement than us. He says even if we say no he can still step out, he has his two feet and no one can stop him. I am aware that some parents would suggest that let him learn the hard way, throw him out and he will realise and come back. Please do not advise that, I cannot go through that torture. I am sure you all must have used other options.
Thanks so much for reading and hope to get some responses to help me.
