DD2 is 18....leaving for college next month...supposedly. Deposits have been made..just orientation and classes. She works 2 pt jobs. The car she drives is in mine and DH name. She 'paid' for the car by replacing the transmission....about $650. She pays $40 a month for half her car insurance &$15 for her y membership. We pay her cellphone. The rest she blows on weed, gas to drive her friends around to buy weed and alcohol. Now DS2 is smoking and apparently his friends. DD2 I believe gets it for DS2 and his friends, although I have been told he has sold it. He will be 15 next month, if I don't kill him before that. They both insist they don't smoke it. DS 2 I can ground, not allow friends over, cancel his cell phone etc.
I have made myself abundantly clear how I feel about it and that it is not allowed in my home. So they go outside...that's where I caught them tonight. I don't think they know what I saw. I didn't acknowledge the paraphernalia on the table, it was kinda dark, but I know what I saw. Then they scattered..went to bed.
I don't know what to do about DD2. Any advice? She is their way of getting it easily. Am I fighting a loosing battle? I am shocked the number of kids I know who smoke weed and the parents that allow it.
Going to bed, will read tomorrow. Thanks.
Am I overreacting? I get the feeling that since it's been legalized in a couple of states already, it must not be any worse than smoking cigarettes...which is the argument. I told them it is currently illegal here, so they shouldn't be doing it, plus a anything mind altering isn't good for you at all.
Should I tell the parents of the boy that was here with them?
