I have no support in this issue from his father, my son;s attitude is one of entitlement, my ex husband and I don't see eye to eye on the issues he allows him to do whatever and treat adults however and then just says I can't handle it. I want my son to learn that bad actions equals bad consequences. You can't go through life treating people with such disregard and expect them to take it and continue to do everything for you. He will be 18 in 6 weeks. He came to my house from his dad's house and I thought I could get him on track and now he thinks he can do whatever he chooses and nothing will happen; My rules were school, no drugs, no guest without approval, no sex and a curfew. It has only been one week and every rule has been broken. He went as far as to take my car for a joyride and smoke pot in it. I told him you break the rules then your making the choice to no longer live here. I had to kick him out last night after he brought another boy home and I felt very uncomfortable in my own home. He proceeded to scream obscenity's at me and =break a picture over his head and even acted as if he was going to hit me and said I should just punch you in the face. He has been through alot and I do love and understand that but I will not tolerate abuse from a teenager. His dad is making it out like it's my fault and how could I kick him out... HELP!!!

Keep him out. If he steals your car or breaks your stuff or hits you... call the police and press charges.

If he wants to live under your roof he will abide by your rules. That's what an adult would do (abide by a rental agreement) if they wanted to live somewhere. If an adult does not abide by a tenant agreement... they become homeless. It's just a simple fact of life when you are an adult.

You can not control what he does at this point. He has to live by the consequences of his actions. If his father wants to let him do whatever he wants... his father can take him in. YOU control what you allow to happen in your home... or not.

Thank you, I feel like I have just won my backbone back. I have 3 other children that are younger and I want them to know now what is and isn't acceptable in my home. Whether it's except-able at Dads or not.. My home my rules!!!
