I am literally at the end of my rope. Our son just turned 16. He is a sophomore in HS. He went from being an honor roll student to failing certain subjects over the past year and a half. I have tried everything. I have taken him to a therapist, grounded him, taken away privileges, taken away his PC, his TV and his cell. I have pretty much taken the advice of the therapist and have taken away his things to motivate him to actually try. Nothing is working. Over the summer I found out he was smoking pot. He stole money from our jug and took singles, fives, tens and twenties. I went out and bought a drug test and it came up positive. I was in a state of shock because he always told me he would never do that. I still drug test him and he is not permitted to hang with the friends that used over the summer. I only trust one boy who is straight edge so he hangs out with him when he isn't grounded for failing. Any idea? Please give me so ideas that might help. Like I said, I feel like I have exhausted all measures because nothing is changing and I'm so upset and sad. Thanks.Answer Question
