My 16 ss called wanting to spend the night with a friend, an 18 year old girl. Apparently, her boyfriend cheated on her and she was threatening suicide. I told him no and that she couldn't stay here either. I asked to speak to the parents and he said they weren't home, that they are never home. He went on to explain that she is a known cutter and she might hurt herself. I told him to just come home. Then I called the police and gave them the info. SS just got home and is pissed because the cops took her to the hospital, admitted her in the psch ward for observation. He says I ruined her life and he is mad because she doesn't want to be his friend anymore. I thought I was doing the right thing but now I feel like crap. What would you have done?
