Hello everyone,

I'm new here and need help. I think my Subject is self explanatory! I will say , my son from a baby has always been careful, sensible and responsible. You know kids at playgrounds, would slide down the slippery dip head first, if they were allowed! My son, from crawling would turn around and go down feet first without ever being told too. He has never behaved any differently, even when first diagnosed, he was amazingly grown up. Then puberty hit, and due to his disease, puberty for him is happening twice at the same time, it's bad enough once - agreed??? I'm scared and im usually very good at solving problems, but this literally took my breath away!!! I think that is all I want to say for now. Can anyone offer me any guidance or if someone has been through the same thing, could they please help me?? Thanks for your time

While I am not clear on what if wrong with your son (and I don't need to know), what are the consequences for smoking in your home? Smoking pot is illegal, where is he getting it? Cutting off the supply and occupying his time can help. If you are concerned he is addicted then take him for treatment. You are still in charge of him and his well-being and what need to make it clear that this behavior is not tolerated.
