I caught my 15 yr old with his girlfriend on sat in his room "making out"

I don't know when being on top of your boyfriend just about having sex just with clothes on was every "making out" but anyways thats a whole nother topic. In the process of talking to my 15 yr old about RESPECT and how that was not aceptable (his friends were in the living room I was home his little brother was home.

He blurts out about smoking pot ... Now I did say I do not condone it ... there are worse things... BUT my 11 yr old is now into it. I found home made stuff (pipes- bongs outta water bottles) I have taken all his stuff away both kids not even a door on the rooms. I later found out my oldest got caught yesterday at school by the janitor but said he would turn him in next time he knows he is a good kid. Now in my talk I did tell him I do not want to see it .. smell it .. not at school or in my house ... I do not know what to do. I called AODS they only help 16 or older unless required by law to attend drug meetings. WHY is there nothing out there for young kids ?

I am afraid my youngest and oldest are smoking together and that my youngest feels acceptance instead of being bullied by his older brother and is going to move on to harder things. PLEASE HELP ME

Exactly June, I am a single parent and my sons have lost there step dad 3 yrs ago that was really really hard on them. We have gone to counseling after counseling. I don't do drugs of any sort why are they Turing to drugs? I talk to them in open with them...it's so frustrating

I have had the same issue, 14 and 16 yr boys. My younger did move into other drugs. I threw all the stuff I found in garbage and took doors off rooms. If either tests positive the phone comes off and no more allowance is given. This has been going on since Feb and the older is clean and the younger is clean, but I am scared to death of what happens when he is off probation for grafitti in Jan '13. Will he go back to drugs? We just started a new counseling program for him. He is in denial and does not think there is a problem. I KNOW it is serious because a few months back when he was into the weed he stole things from us, like cashing a check that was not meant for him. I assume it was to pay for the drugs. The 16 yr old is not doing drugs, but his attitude can be horrendous. I had the same issue with the 16 yr old catching him with his girlfriend, but they had actually had sex. Raising these boys is CRAZY and I hardly know what to do to keep them on track. ANY IDEAS??

This is 2nd to your boys but I would report that janitor. I know you will be turning in your son as well but life has consequences. If I ever found a school employee caught my kid doing drugs and didn't notify anybody, not even me, I would have his/her job!



I have to go right now but I'll be back.
