Key words "time to be around", children live the lives they are taught, there are no perfect parents but when someone has a child they must put their children first above money social life ect. At 15 a teen should not be taking care of a baby (to young) they should be out and doing what a teen should be doing.

What is happening with your son that you feel the need to save him?

We don't have enough info to advise. But here are random thoughts:

If he's doing drugs, Narc-Anon. If he's failing classes, get to the school and talk with the teachers and/or counselors. If he's dropped out, then you set rent for him. He pays it or he's out. If he's knocked up a girl, then you make sure he pays child support. If he's merely having sex with a girl, you make sure he understands that he needs to use a condom.

REHAB. Right now. This is saveable but you need to get him off the drugs.
