Honestly I have no idea what to do. Here I have a 17 year old, almost 18 years old son who simply refuses to stop stealing, snitching, "borrowing", etc. He was just suspended because he was using someone else's locker to hide stolen shoes that he took from the locker room. 4 brand named shoes. None his size. But he wore them anyways. His suspension was up today.
Before everyone gets upset, my son lives in the basement. So do I. We have a bathroom, windows, heat, exterior windows and a walk outside door. Due to his taking everything not nailed down, we lock the upstairs door so you need to have a key to get up there. So what did he do? Took the key off of my keyring! I mean seriously! And of course lied about it.
My youngest daughter, has crohn's disease, pancreatic insufficiency, and now has wasting syndrome. She has lost almost 40lbs since December. She is now 5'2" and 89lbs.
My mom bought everyone one of those travel cookie/cheese it things and my daughter is unable to eat but a little at a time. She went to get her cookies and they were missing. Of course he lied about it. Then we found the key missing, yes he lied about that. We have a store room with excess items so we can always have something in case something happens (power outage, lost job, etc.) He used to pick the lock to get in and take peanut butter (4lbs) and any goodies he could get his hands on. When we changed the lock because of it, he climbed under a tiny staircase to get in it. When that was borded up HE TOOK THE ENTIRE DOORFRAME OUT. I found out because he wasn't smart enough to nail it back in and it fell on me.
I'm at a loss. My husband doesn't want to turn him over to the state, we can't kick him out.
I'm so stressed out I can't think. I've got my youngest who is so sick she's borderline hospital all the time and my son who is so... I don't know... that he won't stop lieing and taking things!
And about therapy, he's been and been and been. It's now court ordered evaulation and again nothing is wrong with him.
