My son is in the 7th grade and we have had problems with him turning in his school work all year long. He says he is getting bullied at school for being short and not having arm pit hair etc.... Well this last quarter I thought we finally got him to just concentrate on his grades and not the bullies, the work has all been pretty much turned in. Then Tuesday I got the dreaded phone call no parent ever wants to get from the dean, my 13 year old son was involved in a Loritab investigation they are conducting at the school an he had admitted to taking one! One of the other students ( whom I believe was expelled) was getting them from his older brother and bringing them to school. He gave my son a half of one and then another whole one the next day. I haven't spoken one on one with the dean yet, that will come when the conference is scheduled. I am at a loss as to what to do now?! I have talked to my son several times about how wrong and dangerous pills are before and after this incident, obviously to no avail. School is out in a week in a half, but how should I handle this? I was not ready for this yet, but I guess you never really are. I had thought I kept a pretty close eye on him, but I can control what he does at school. Thank you for listening and any advise in advance.
