Kicked my 19 year old out last night. Quit school, drugs, arrested, now having sex with a girl in our home. That was the last straw.

This is coming from his personal choices. He's decided that he doesn't need school, that drugs are what he wants to do now. Sex is normal at that age, he's a human being, but if he could not respect your house rules, and be courteous, then he didn't deserve to live in that space.

Its nothing that you "did", or "didn't do", this is your son making the choices that he wants to make. He may turn around now that he's been arrested, but then again, may have to hit rock bottom.

My prayers are with you. Your son will have to learn how to live on his own, maintain employment, and be a productive member of society. He'll take some hard knocks, but hopefully he'll pull his head out.

Just to let you know, at the age of 19, my husband was your son. Drugs, etc. He was clean and sober by the age of 23, and we've been married now for 24 years, with him being clean for 27. There is hope!

Well, he is an adult, and is capable of surviving on his own.

Just can't imagine where he will go with no money and almost no friends. Feeling pretty defeated about now! I worry about his mental state.... This behavior and way of life was not modeled by our 28 year wonderful marriage and financial responsibility. Where is this coming from?
