I am the mother of 3 teens. 2 boys ages 15 and 17 also 1 daughter age 14. My 15 year old is currently in a detention center for possesion charges and numerous other problems with the law. This morning I was called at 5am by the state police. They arrested my 17 year old for 3rd degree assult and drinking under age. Both of my children have been in counselling for drug and alcohol problems. also we have went to family counselling. I feel like I am at a dead end. I know about alcohol abuse from my own activities in the past. (I have been clean and sober for some time). I know these are choices they are making thereselves but I feel real lost. Any advice on how to keep my own sanity throughout all of this?
