Teen left home early

I have a 17 year old that left home in February, quit school and has gotten into a very anti-social group. He was doing well academically, but has now thrown it all to the side. I have found it so difficult to just "let go" and allow him to have his experience, realizing his choices and consequences are not mine. I "know" all the facts but it's hard to get it from my head to my heart. It's as though I'm going through extreme empty nest (although I still have a child at home - 16 yo). I pray daily that he changes his path - if he doesn't want to come home, that's fine, but to get onto a healthier (safer!) path.

I suppose its very difficult to deal with the fact that your little ones have left the nest and gone out into the big wide world. Maybe you could talk with some of the teachers or the principal. If you want you could try to talk with him, but trying to get teenagers to listen is like trying like talking to the wall sometimes. Good luck :)
