So this is a follow up with another question. To recap the 18 yr old was kicked out (or left depending who you talk to parents or kid) after he had been on the street for over 24 hrs and then called his parents which didn't go well at all. Turns out the kid has daily meds he has to take that got left at home when he left. The parents say to get his meds he needs to go back home, if he doesn't return home they will send them but he'll never be welcomed back home. He is scared to go home, he doesn't want to be there, he feels like he is mistreated there. I can't keep the kid here for the long term, I am at a loss of what to do. On top of it all he still has another year of school left so he can't just go find a job and start a life. I'm really torn up dealing with this.Answer Question

call the cops... let them help sort it out. The parents are total ass holes to let it get this far... he may be 18 but he's far from an adult if he still has a year of high school left.

I agree with Sara maybe he can work to contribute if money is your only concern. Maybe you need to finally talk to his parents and get their side first. See how their mannerisms are, see if they are as bad as he says. I hope things work out.
