We have just had to let our 17 year old go, not because we don't love him but because we do. But we can no longer enable him to sell our stuff, abuse us with words, punch walls and doors. Smash cell phones.
I cry every night and I hope we are doing the right thing. He has told us that he wants no rules and that he is moving out and becoming independent (with no money no education no job) but rings us every day for money we reply by saying no - get a job - was he has heard that we get abused and phone put down. Blocked on Facebook etc. He has even told us to change his surname as he does not want to hear or see us ever again.
After that last message I sent him this (you have a home a mom dad and brother that love you. Until you realise that we can not help you.
Its so hard. but I can not longer enable his bad rude behaviour I would be creating a monster. I hope we have a happy ending.
