My son is 15 years ,he got suspended from school because of drug use I took him out of school and kept him home for a while ,now he is about to start a new school ,but I came home from work and he broke in to my room stole money and brought drugs ,my husband does not want him in the house any more ,so I took him up to stay with my mother ,my question is should I leave my husband and get a place to rent and stay with my son untill he gets better or should I stay with my husband who doesn't even want to reconsider !

What kind of drugs is your son doing?

Is your son in treatment?

I don't know nearly enough about your situation to assess whether it was reasonable for your husband to insist that your son leave the house. Sometimes kids who are using should leave the family home. Sometimes parents overreact.

Hi ,us not doing well in school ,his dad left when he was only 5yrs ,he never stayed in contact with him ,after 9yrs I got remarried and my husbands welcome him into his home ,i always kept him close to me and treated him with respect and love,he is a loving child with lots of wonderful qualities but at times he makes bad choices!

How is your son doing otherwise? Does he go to school? Is he doing well at school? Is he generally a good kid aside from this? How was his relationship with his dad before? How is your relationship with his dad?
