I have a 19 year old son that is not a bad kid but one that has no drive and has seemed to atract trouble. Everytime I turn around he seems to have to be pulled out with a 4X4. He doent get a little deep, he slams in the ground with force. My X and I have been helping him out of everything, knowing that we should do the tough love stratagy. BUT, My theory is will we drive him further into trouble or will he understand and bounce back on top. His Mom, which he has moved back in with after a few Months on his own, now threatens to make him move out because he does nothing but sit around the house. He has no bills and doesnt need money. After he moved back with her, It was such a sigh of relief to sleep at night instead of worrying about where and what he was doing. I know she is right but I am so afraid that he will be forced out and into drugs or stealing just to live, as that was where he was headed before. I have tried to get him to live with me, but he likes it there, but He may not be there much longer due to his Moms decision. How do you just let your kid just fall so far that it hurts so bad to see them that way? Tough Love, I hear all the time, BUT does that mean it is tough for them or us as parents? It hurts so bad to see him so deep!!!
