My son is smoking again. It seems every summer he steps back into that world. My problem is that before I could go to the parents and things were clamped down. Now the parents don't care that that his friends are smoking, How does a parent hold their ground when all the other parents are caving? How do you get through that thick skull when he consistently watches documentaries on how pot has no harmful effects. I have grounded him, I even changed schools, not that he won't find influence there, but I just can't get through to him. He is such a smart, happy go lucky kid and when he's in sports he is determined and steadforth with his grades and then summer comes and the next thing I know he's bored and back with his stupid friends. We don't have the money to get him into summer sports. I wake up thinking about this, I go to bed thinking about this...I'm tired.
