Teenage Son

Amy - posted on 10/15/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi I'm new to this site so I'm not sure exactly how it works. I have a son that will be 16 in a couple weeks and he is starting to smoke pot and is heading down the wrong path and I'm not sure what to do or where to start. He over all is a good kid and doesn't get into trouble but he's starting to hangout with the wrong crowd and I'm afraid it's going to only get worse. Does any experienced mom's with teenagers have any advice?

Well, good for you for not waiting until things got worse to address this. But I'm sorry you're facing these issues with your son. As far as some advice concerning smoking pot, I came across an article at http://bit.ly/1Rfzhbw that might give you a little guidance. Also, as it relates to hanging out with the wrong crowd, maybe find some ways to encourage activities where he can meet new people? Extracurriculars like sports, clubs, or maybe a youth group of some sort? Just some where you think there might be some more positive influences. And it also may help take up some time when he would've been hanging out with these friends. Lastly, don't be afraid to set some boundaries with him as far as the smoking and friendships. I know it's not a fun position to take, but in the long run he may thank you for it...
