... I so have to agree here - my friends daughter who is 17 and a senior has never given her mother any trouble, She is a cheerleader, on the National Honor Society, has been accepted to 4 good colleges and continues to receive acceptance letters, never misses her curfew, doesn't disrespect her mother and we just found out - she smokes POT everyday, likes to Drink, and is now...

... You know, I mostly agree with how you handled the situation. Your son knows the rules, he knows when the curfew is, he never should have put himself in that situation in the first place. ... (8 replies)
... Thanks for your advice Kelly Belly. You are right I should have looked at it more as helping him out. I think I was really more upset at my son for putting me in the situation. I won't call his mother, you are absolutely right. I let my son stay out until 12:30 because the prom was over at 12:00, and they were suppose to then go to his friend's house who is our...

... I think you did the right thing by taking the kid home. I would not have called a cab...just take him home without any complaints. Yes, he isn't your child, but you don't know the kid's home life so you helped him out. Your good deed will come back to you one day. I would also not call his parent - that would humiliate him as well as your son. It's over - leave it alone. ... (8 replies)

... telling when she will find out about this. I called and left her a VM though, telling her what I was told happened and the school PO also sent her an email.

... Purplerain, Wow, hang in there. Your daughter sounds like my youngest brother --10 year difference in our age. He as pure hell. I remembe being at college when he started on his rollercoaster. My parents finally got frustrated. Here's some things that they did. He started at 14. He's now 21 and much hasn't changed. ---he smoked, failing grades/skipped school, lied,... (15 replies)

... I am at my wits end with my 17 year old daughter. We had to make a major move and I understand what a crappy time in her life it was to do it, but there was no choice. ... (6 replies)
... Thanks everyone. When I read the first couple of replies I realized I didn't think about embarrassing the child and his home life. I was raised to care for others but at 1:00 in the morning I just flipped out. My tone and words were not kind. I didn't curse but I was just short of it. My goal is not to shame and embarrass my son. It is to set boundaries and stick with... (8 replies)
... I agree with how you handled it. We're our kids' parents, not someone trying to be "cool" in front of their friends. Rules are rules and unless you made an exception ahead of time, your son was well aware of them. Too bad this friend of his mother didn't care as much about him as you do about your son. I can't imagine telling my son that I'm in bed and don't care that... (8 replies)
... Thank you for the kind words. We do have a wonderful place here, and it can be so helpful to get another take on our questions from a variety of people. I wish you and your family all the best! Come back anytime! (8 replies)
... I am sitting here reading your reply with tears in my eyes. You are so right. I only looked at what I/we had wanted. I guess we try so hard to keep him close that we maybe pushing him away. I talked to my son after the first reply. I know I need to talk to him again. I shared your reply with my husband too. I'm glad I found this site and I'm thankful for the honest... (8 replies)
