my son wants to move out

Posted by   + Show Post
Ok. Now that my son totally blames me for his breakup with his girlfriend...my 14 year old is bitter and wants to move out and temporarily stay with his aunt (my sister). I love my son with all my heart...what do I do?

 If you let him go now kiss him bye because if he comes back he will leave every time something doesn't go his way.  By letting him go he is learning to run from his problems rather than working through them

We have been going through this with my daughter for the last year.  I had to send her to live with her dad a few months ago, and now she is threatening to run away from HIS house.  We've decided to send her to live with my parents temporarily to help her get out of her teenage funk.  It's awful.  She's 14 as well, and never really had any major issues until she started her menses.  It's like her hormones are in this crazy flux of angst and uncontrollable and unmanageable impulsivity.  Don't get me started on the whole frontal lobe thing...because it really is a thing.  Do what you have to do to get through these years.  Hopefully your sister is a strong advocate of you and the rules you lay down for your son.  Hopefully it is not an easy out for him, and living with her will be a learning experience about living and co-existing in a healthy way with other people. 

Having a troubled teen, truly helps me understand why people send their kids to boarding school.  If I could afford it, I would.
