I don't know what to do. My 16 year old son says he is moving out when he turns 17 in less than a month. We have had issues, he is failing in school I get up and drive him everyday. He had an "incident" last year and if he stays out of trouble until then he will not have a juvenile record which is why I try not to let him go out because when he does he either drinks or gets high. My youngest kids dad found some inappropiate materials in his room and wants him to leave. My son is verbaly respectful to me but his actions are disrespectful. He states I am babying him and i admit I do tend to "make sure" he does things, he lacks motivation and always has(I had him checked but everything is fine). between him, my 14 year old (doing better) and a "difficult" spouse, I am tired. A part of me thinks maybe I should let him go to see if he learns better and leave an open door but the other part of me says to keep fighting for him. This is short and I can't detail but I have been fighting for this kid in SO many ways and he just refuses. The court even told me I was a "rare" mother because I was so involved with him and trying to help. I have so much more going on.
