I have a 17 year old that left home in February, quit school and has gotten into a very anti-social group. He was doing well academically, but has now thrown it all to the side. I have found it so difficult to just "let go" and allow him to have his experience, realizing his choices and consequences are not mine. I "know" all the facts but it's hard to get it from my head to my heart. It's as though I'm going through extreme empty nest (although I still have a child at home - 16 yo). I pray daily that he changes his path - if he doesn't want to come home, that's fine, but to get onto a healthier (safer!) path.
