I'd like some advice about how to manage my son who is refusing to come home or answer his phone or listen to anyone who tells him to call me. Even if i do get him home, he'll only leave again. I can't lock him in the house. I don't know what to do - any suggestions? Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks for reaching out for some support with what must be a really distressing time for you. I'd love to find out a little bit more about your situation so we can provide the best support for you. Can I ask how old your son is? Do you know where he stays when he doesn't come home?
It can be really difficult to communicate with teens at times, so I can understand how tough this is. Has he been open to chat about why he refuses to come home? This video on effective communication might be a helpful watch to get some more tips.
