My son wants to live with my mom, who by the way lives 500 miles from me. He is very unhappy here where I live. He was born and raised where she is up untill about a year ago. Now he is getting in trouble (nothing major yet) every other day. Has MAJOR attiude problems. I think I should but then I think how can I just "give up" working with him and let him go. Just thinking that I might I feel like a failed at being a mother. I try to explain this to my husband (step-dad for my son) and he just says I'm being silly. He thinks it'll be better for him. Don't get him worng he does love him as his own. He tells me that if we don't do something now he may end up in jail, on drugs etc. But every time I think I'll send him to my mom I feel like I'm giving up on him and like I fail. What would you do? I need advice. We have tried punshinment, talking, yelling, everything we can think of. Nothing seems to work. thanks in advance...
