Making a child Homeless?

Cath - posted on 08/13/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




Please help. I've been searching the responses to this and still don't know if I'm doing the right thing. My son decided to leave home when he was 18 as I wasn't letting hin 'live his life', when all I asked was for him to get a job and have some respect (IE by letting me know where he was, if he would be home, and to home at a reasonable 10pm Sun - Thurs PM as I have to get up for work at 4.30am).
So, he left. He landed up sleeping on mates sofas, and when he got kicked out for not paying any rent, he came home for the weekend. On the Monday, I took him to the Homeless place in the city, and this weekend, found out he has lied about being in hostels and the like - he hasn't even claimed JSA.

I've put some conditions on him being back, but it's day 2, and he's already lied to me about finding a course, and even signing on.

My head says to kick him out but I don't know if I can cope with him being on the streets.
Anyone got any ideas?

I know it's harsh, but he has to learn. He doesn't want to do the right thing, so yes I would kick him out.
