I have mentioned my 16 yo son before. He has always been challenging but lately he is refusing to do anything we say and does not care about any consequences. He has a history of depression and when he was basically unresponsive to a talk I had with him, I went through his text messages checking for suicidal warning signs etc. I found a disturbing conversation with a teenage girl who is very racist. In these messages my son says he loves her (we have never heard of her). She talks about how her family thinks her racist views are wrong and my son supports her by saying he is a racist! I was already so done with him defying me, failing classes, being rude, refusing to get a job and doing nothing he is told to do that I felt like moving out. This is ruining my health and my marriage. Then to see that he either lied about being a racist to get in some girls pants or that he is a racist makes me feel like he is a stranger. If he was not my son, he would not be in my life. How do I stop letting this hurt me physically and emotionally? How do I protect my marriage? Can I live another 15 months until he is 18?
