I divorced my ex-husband three years ago, and when I ask for his help on the child discipline front, he shrugs his shoulders and says, “Well. what do you want me to do?”
My eldest kid is 16. I recently discovered he’s using marijuana after confronting him, crying, and shouting. I am exhausted and fearful of the impact it will have on his 12-year-old sibling. He blatantly lied that it has stopped when evidently it has not!! If any of you have smelled pot you will know it’s not a smell you can easily disguise!
His grades have been falling. Now he’s attached himself to a friend of his whose uncle is a dealer and has an expensive lifestyle from the proceeds of drug crime. I am absolutely beside myself that he’ll get drawn into this life and how much money he can make.
I want to set some rules to say that if the police catch him, I will not support him, bail him out, or visit him in jail. If he chooses this life, then he’s on his own. My sister went through hell with her son, who ended up a heroin addict. I don’t think I have the wherewithal to deal with that kind of drama. Any advice would be great here.
