AM I TERRIBLE MOM FOR PUTTING MY SON ON MEDS AND NOT LEARNING TO CONTROL HIM W/O MEDS. MY 14 YEAR OLD SON TELLS ME HE IS SICK OF TAKING HIS MEDS HE SKIPS THEM, WHEN HE DOES THIS I TELL HIM YOU BETTER CONTROL YOURSELF OR YOULL GET INTO TROUBLE, AND SURE ENOUGH THE SCHOOL WILL CALL. HE BLAMES ME NOT PARENTING HIM RIGHT AND PUTTING HIM ON MEDS IS A COP OUT FOR US. BUT HE IS UNCONTROLABLE W/O THEM, HE SAYS YOU JUST DONT WANT TO PUT UP W/ME. SHOULD I BE CAREFUL NOW, IS THIS A BAD THING OF SOMETHING TO COME, HE GETS ALL A'S IN SCHOOL, HES FUNNY. HE SAYS HE DOESNT LIKE TO FEEL LIKE A ZOMBIE AND HE CANT EVEN LAUGH AT A JOKE WHEN HES ON THEM, SOME KIDS SAY TO HIM WHEN HES NOT ON HIS MEDS "HEY MAN ARE YOU HIGH OR SOMETHING YOU SURE ARE ACTING LIKE IT" HELL PLAY ALONG AND SAY YEAH. I FEEL LKE A FAILURE OF A MOM/PARENT.ANY ADVICE???
