I read the sarcasm in there but liked that dream weaver saw through that and voiced the truth as he saw in the original statement with a tweek.

Too late for the OP but if you have children that are approaching the impressionable age, quit drinking altogether or at least don't get drunk in front of them. Alcohol is THE gateway drug that will have your kids running around with the wrong crowd. Oh, and it doesn't matter what class you are because I am a member of a yacht club with a bunch of 1%'s and most of their kids are a wreck (the parents all booze it up pretty good).

I wish you well, and wish I had an answer for you. Like others we went thru this when our son was 15 until he was 24. He now is sober and my best friend for the last 9 years. I asked him what was different in his 4th rehab. He said nothing, he is the one wanted to be sober, not me.

I do not have a kid and really not sure how to advise you especially since I don’t know the intimate details of your relationship with him.

Bottom line if weed is illegal where you live he can and will be caught at some point. Drinking underage is illegal and again chances are he will be at the wrong place at the wrong time and get caught.

Maybe sit him down with examples of how these actions have hurt others and explain you love him and he can’t be trusted so there has to be a new protocol. He can have his car and some freedom but you will be giving him random drug and alcohol test. If he fails he loses privileges including privacy and use of the car?

Parenting is hard. You’re not his friend, you’re his parent.

so, you are saying lead by example and get all the beer, alcohol out of the house, cigars, cigarettes, cursing like a sailor, tattoos, poor choices in friends, eating habits? That’s all got to stop?
