I have two kids a 15 year old boy and a 13 year old girl. I like to think of myself as a good mom they play sports and do out of school activities but when it comes to parties I am very strict on what ones I let them go to. My son plays hockey and they were going to have a beginning of the year party but I did not approve of the parents hour they were having it at. But I did say he could go till midnight and I would pick him up, that wasent good enough so I said to bad you don't go. We had our first big argue ment and my parents live 15 min away so I told him I would drop him off so we could have cool down time. My dad thought it would be sneaky to drive him to the party and pick him up early so I would never know. Here I found pictures on Facebook of him drinking at this party. I am so angry I called and told my dad off and he just told me what I can do if you know what I mean. I feel so betrayed by both of them I do everything for my kids and they know how I feel about liers! I don't know what to doi am so shocked right now!!

Well first, I would get the pictures off of facebook. Turn them into the police and press charges on the parents in charge. This will not only send a nice big "don't mess with me" towards the adults in charge of the party. It will also show your son his actions won't only affect him.

As far as your father goes, there isn't a ton that you can do. You can refuse to let him see the grandkids until you get his word he will not override your parenting. You need to believe that he is sorry. I personally would refuse to have contact with him until he realizes he is going to lose you and the kids. That might be too far for some.
