My son is a trouble maker and an alcoholic. I love him to death but he is always getting into some trouble or another. We have done rehab, tough love and all of that, nothing seems to work. Right now he is living with my daughter and he got drunk last night, called home, and insisted on a ride home. My dd told him before when this happens he is to sleep it off. Her husband got the call when she was asleep and felt bad, so he went to get my son and sons friend. On the way home a deer ran out in front of them and totalled my dds car (her dh was driving hers). She called me this morning in tears letting me know she cant handle it anymore and he needs to go. He cant come here because as I said we have house rules and I told him either he gets a job or goes to college. He told me he was going to party and he is a grown man and theres nothing I can do about it. So off he went.
A few months ago he got into trouble with the law. I left him in jail (to teach him a lesson). My mil went and got him out. He is out on bond now and doing all this crazy stuff. I had it this morning and called my mil and told her what happened. She is going to get him to stay with her as the bond agreement stated. I know she will end up putting him back in jail since he wont listen. Was I wrong to tell her? I just cant handle this anymore. I know it is Easter and probably crappy I had to do this today, but my dd is in tears, he has no where to stay and I really cannot have him here with us.

I don't have an answer just complete sympathy and empathy for you and your situation. I have one of those problem adult children as well. I know they are adults but that doesn't keep our hearts from breaking when we see them destroying their lives and getting into trouble. You don't 'let go' of your children, you let them suffer through the consequences of their actions but it still breaks our hearts. I'm sorry you have to deal with this.
