I have a question about my 16 y/o son.He has lived with my parents for almost a year saying that he can no longer live with his 14 y/o brother.(he has bipolar,adhd,o.d.d,conduct disorder...)I understood his need for a normal childhood.However,a few months ago his brother moved in with his father(same dad)andhe still didnt come home..Ive been patient but I really miss him,ive been very depressed lately b/c hes not here.(@ my parents house theres always lots of ppl there and my sister always has all 6 of her crying kids there,its not peaceful)when I asked him today he said"im fine where I am"..his dad told me the main reason was my behavior....mood swings,uncertain about how I will act...I admit that having to raise my 14 y/o has worn me out and maybe I havent reacted in the best of ways.I feel like I havent done something so terrible that he would rather live in that house vs his own,guilt is eating me alive,any advice please!Answer Question

You need to be worthy of trust and respect and you have to have treated him with trust and respect.
