  • i think legally she cant throw him out because he is under scenario maybe is to call the cops...or bring him home if you dont wanna do that....but as the previous poster said...he might not have been kicked out...and if he was what did he do? sounds like you dont know the whole to give him back to his mom...

  • Incomprehensible to me as well! I have taken in my share of throw away kids, what I did was contacted his family for a peaceful resolution.

  • I got kicked out at 16, by my dad and stepmother, she said I "disrupeted her family" (I only came to live with them at 14, after my dad found out that there was abuse going on at my mom's house.) anyway, she and my dad had 3 other kids, 10-14 years younger than I was, so she told me to leave. I didn't know what to do, My dad tried to talk to me for about a month after, and then he stopped, he also never responded to any of my attempts to talk to him, After 13 years, we have finally started talking, I've worked everything out with both of them, (after many talks) and I am so glad to have them in my life again, I suggest you call the parents of that child, and try to help him the best you can, teenagers can be a handful, there might be more going on here then you know.

  • Having 4 children, I never want to have to do that but if 1 of them is out of control, they will have to go. I have 3 other children to think about & there are some things that are just unacceptable.

  • my egg donor threw me out when I was 15. It was rough for a long time. I never did drugs or anything else until I was on the streets. 7 years later I am clean and sober and have a child of my own. I have never seen or spoken to my mother since she kicked me out. She kicked me out because she caught my stepfather looking at me while I wasundressing and I didn't know he was there..

  • Depends on what he did. If he was using drugs and refused to get help, I'd kick him out too.

  • I'd be calling social services. If he's telling the truth then he can be placed with a family that wants him there and can help him. If he's not then he's considered a runaway and needs help. Either way it helps him.
