My 15 yr. old son has add/adhd. He is basically a good kid, and right now he is doing well in school and sports and at home. But in the last 12 months has been caught with: alcohol (twice), chew (twice), and cigarettes (once). We know these are fairly "fringe" activities, because we keep him on an incredibly short leash -freedom wise. But we realize that as he gets older, we will have no choice but to lengthen his freedom leash. Every time he is caught he seems very sorry, and promises "never again," only to be in trouble a few months later. Should we be panicking? Is this normal "teens will be teens" behavior? What do you think we should do?
