i need advise please i have a 16yr old son, that is angry at the world i tried to talk to him with no success, i've threatened him but i just cannot get through to him. He failed at school this(grade ten) i've warned him sinced the beginning of the year about his attitude towards his school work and people around him. He is extremely rude and i cannot tolerate this any more. As we speak he is not home did not sleep at home for the whole weekend does not answer my calls if i phone, wont listen to me and my rules at home.I'm thinking of calling the cops on him and to take him for a drug test in a few days even if must get help from someone.

I am in the same situation, I feel scared anymore...im afraid he is going to kill me or one of our pets with his anger. my son is 18 though and if it continues much longer (he graduates..hopefully in 2 months) I am kicking him out and changing the locks. I am the only one who has ever been there for him, he has been in ld classes since starting school, has never had long term friends, and tried but did not do well in sports...although he continued through h.s. with football until he was picked up by the cops with a underage alcohol/pot violation. he will take off and not come home or tell me where he is..... although he works the smallest thing will set him off.....today someone posted something rude (to him) on his facebook and that set him off on a tirade and screamfest for at least a half hour. I don't know where this came from I was a stay at home mom and he was involved in activities to try to give him self esteem but nothing has ever worked.....I always say his life has been a struggle since day one.....I had two miscarriages before him and was very sick and on bedrest with him....he ended up almost 3 months premature and weighing 2.5 pds. I blame a lot of his problems from that but I cant take this anymore...of course his older sister by 3 years is the total opposite.....thanx for letting me vent....I really should go to therapy for this.....I blame myself

i am new to this forum but found it looking for advise for my out of control teen. i have 4 kids. middle older one is a 16 year old girl. she also is so defient to any rules we have. we have been living like this like it seems like forever but now....i really try not to fight. went to one social worker (went to many) but as my daughter said to this person that things were really much better at home. social worker looked at me and asked if i felt the same. i said "no, i just dont care anymore". i know that seems horrible to say about someone you love but i found that the cops, and all the other agency's do absolutly nothing except make more drama. you have to ask yourself what do you want the outcome to be??? do the right legal thing. give food, shelter and anything you feel good about giving your son and then move on. i know this doesnt help your situation but it really is the only sane thing to do...
