Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
I guess I am just seeking advise on how to handle such situation at his age; he will be 18 years old next month.
I understand the pressures out there with adolenscents today, I was one once myself and I was in alot worse of a situtation my parents promoted tough love and today I have succeeded. I tried to be compassionate and understanding but I feel he has taken advantage and assumed that to be acceptance from me.
He does drink minimal, he does smoke (I feel ecxessively) he does comply with my curfew/check-in rules and he does work and his management adores him. Do I accept the choices he makes and deal with it with hopes he will grow out of it? Do I let them (him and his friends) do this at my home or do I force them out and hope they make it home safe; Primarily my son!
