I requested some support from the courts when my son's 2nd pretrial was rescheduled for lack of evidence with some of the charges. Little did I know that it would come in the form of house arrest. I'd rather he be here than in a detention facility yet sometimes I wish he was there. His behavior was actually quite acceptable (when he was home) before detention because he was able to do just about anything he wanted. Now, however, there are rules - many rules he has a difficult time with so his dad and I take the brunt of it. He was just put on home detention yesterday and we have 13 days left before we go back for the FINAL pretrial (it's stamped on the paper we brought home) and I am wondering when I draw the line when he misbehaves. Normally, he is okay but when his needs aren't being made (hungry, tired, etc) and add withdrawal to the mixture, he goes crazy! He's disrespectful -swears etc. I am hoping things settle down since it's a new adjustment but if they don't....any suggestions? He already broke a few small rules and I don't know if I should let it slide and see how he does.
