my child will be 18 in less than two months. he is quite un responsive to me and my husband. doesn't have any friends, doesn't go anywhere. He has ADD and is finally getting medication, and is doing fantastic in school. Probably a genius. Doesn't do anything to take care of himself. doesn't care anything about consequences. Have been to several counselors. they can't get him to talk. have been told I should go to counseling and maybe I am being to rough on him because he has never been in trouble and I still do get a kiss and a hug and an I love you before bed at night. They tell me to go easy on him. I want him to have a full happy life and I don't want him to hurt anyone or himself. He is on medicaid so we can't see just anyone. Who or where do I go for help. He says he is angry with me and I should know why but he won't tell me. I am really scared for him. Says when he turns 18 he is going to come and go whenever he wants and I will never know where he is. He has always been loved, the favorite of every family member but he doesn't value anyone or anything. Help

I am anything but hard on him. He doesn't care about anything. His grandpa thought the world of him so did his cousin. When they died he didn't even cry even asked me why he didn't cry now he says he doesn't even remember them.

Go easy on him, we are human beings and we make mistakes My experience with people who are hard on ther kids has never turned out well. I was in foster care, one of my families treated me fine, but they were so hard on the grade school aged kids, even their own, that I know their kid has a drug problem. My brother would stupid things that 8 year olds do. One he plaed in the trash, and once he ate a single dog food nugget. Both circumstances he didn'tdo anything that bad, the real solution would be to tell him not to do that, but they spanked him. That kids is homeless in Seattle, I can't find him because he doesn't want to be found. The other kids is likely dead, nobody can find him.
Of course the kid is angry, he'll never do anything right
