Now what?

He's 15.

Also, I bought some sinus meds and haven't been able to find them for about a week.  I put them in a grocery bag to take to work and that's the last I remember seeing them.  I thought I forgot them at home but now I'm thinking he found the pills and took them.  Also found a pill bottle from his old ADHD meds.  It was in his room and empty.  And found some money and 2 $25 microsoft gift cards in his room that I never bought him.  I'm wondering if he is doing drugs and selling pills.


Edit to say that I found the bottom of a soda can that was cut off and has scorch marks.  Inside there is some wax?  What the hell?!  Also found evidence that he was crushing something in a shot glass, it's greenish and I really think it's my missing sinus meds.  I had an old box go missing too but I wasn't too concerned about it because they're not the ones from behind the pharmacy counter but they were a light greenish color.


Another edit--found a little baggie of powder.  Fuck.  I swear it looks like kool-aid powder though, it's a light orange color and looks too uniformly ground to be any drug I ever saw.  But then I am old and out of the loop.  Is this drugs?


last edit--talked to my son, met him in the driveway and asked him why I found drug paraphernalia in his bedroom when I was putting away his socks.  He gave me a weak explanation for it, I indicated that I didn't really believe his explanation but that since I didn't really find any drugs that I would give him the benefit of the doubt.  But I explained all of the bad stuff that happens if he is caught with drugs or paraphernalia in school and that he gets the benefit of the doubt from me exactly ONE TIME.  I confiscated all  of it; the bong, the wax, the baggie, and two lighters.  We will be talking about this more but I have to go and get his sister from the school bus soon.  I made him shovel the other half of the driveway by himself, about 8 inches of packed, wet, heavy-ass snow that has been laying there for a week because we only cleared one lane of the driveway, up to the garage door.  So he had to clear the other half of the driveway, it's about 50 feet from the garage to the road.  And the baggie is Kool aid powder.  I didn't taste it myself, but since that's exactly what it looks like I'm inclined to believe him, unless someone reading this knows it could be something else?

I'd crack down so hard he wouldn't even be allowed to shit without running it by me first.

Smash his bong, but leave it where he had it. Attach a note that says We need to talk.

If it's a water bong, pee in it and put it back.

Yeah, all signs are pointing that he's up to no good.  I'd handle that shit quickly before it gets out of hand (if it hasn't already).

You definitely need to have a serious talk. I would tread lightly though. You don't want to push him away where he might rebel and get deeper into trouble. Good luck!

Absolutely, it's just that he's an otherwise good kid.  Very responsible, always helpful and kind, straight-A's, been in the gifted program since 2nd grade.  His room has always been a disaster area though, I went in there to put away some clean socks and take some dishes out.  It's like he snapped or something, I don't know.  I just checked his grades and he's doing fine.  Yes, I'm going to confront him about what I found, but I really don't know where I'm going to go from there.
