Advice Needed: Have you ever had to throw your 18 year old...
Have you ever had to throw your 18 year old son out of the house? If so can you give me any advice on how to handle it and what to expect?
My son was raised with strict rules by my husband and I. He is 18 years old, just graduated high school with a 3.2 gpa. The problem we are having is that he is now sneaking out at night to do graffiti. He is openly defying us. Since he graduated and has been doing this for more than a year I'm sure we have stopped staying up all night to make sure he abides by our rules. He is now taking advantage of us. He has no job, we have taken his phone away, he still has a computer to facebook his friends. I should probably take that as well. We have not given him any money the only money he has is from graduation enough to keep him going for a month or so. We have told him he has a month to get a job. it's coming dangerously close to that time. He's a really good kid except for the smoking pot and graffiting. Should we throw him out? this is a tough one.
