Parents Support One Another @ MyOutOfControlTeen.com/support =
I have a 16 year old boy who is out of control and I am very frightened by him. He has no respect for me and his father. He has damaged property, stolen, lied, drunk alcohol, hit his mother and father and called the police and had his father arrested. He was thrown out of the house and returned after 3 weeks agreeing to a very basic contract of respect, no lying, or stealing, going to school and coming back, and no going out and on probation or a month. within 3 weeks of that he was absuing the system by going out without permission and returning home at 12.30. Last friday he was brought home by the police as he was involved in a violent incident where one of his friends trashed a shop and other boys ran and 2 were beaten with metal rods and are now in hospital. They were kept in a prison cell and will be charged with . Now the friends are arguing amongst each other and threatening each other with fights as to who is the snitch etc etc. The boy has no respect. He will not carry out any consequences. Just refuses and says I dont like your rules. Every thing in the house is either with a parent or locked up. The effect on all our lives is devastating and especially a younger sibling (boy) who is 13 who is so far OK. Can anyone help. I have been following the advice in the e-book but it is so hard and I dont know what to do.
