My 17 yr old recently left home. He said he is 17 and shouldn't have any rules. He was living with a friend for about 7 weeks. I guess the family finally got tired of it and kicked him out. He came back home. He said he would live by our rules. My rules aren't hard. Go to school, on weeknights be in by 9:30, on weekends midnight. If he is any later just call me.He knows I do not approve of underage drinking, however, if he is going to do it, please do not drink and drive. You can stay overnight where you are, or I will come and get you. As long as he respects me, I will respect him.
The 3rd night night he was home he broke all these rules. I had to go to a sheriffs dept at 1:00 in the morning to pick him up. I grounded him him the next weekend.He says noones making him stay home.I told him if he cant live by my rules he will have to leave. Am I wrong? That was the hardest thing I ever had to do.
