I am sorry you guys are going through this. It feels so helpless when are kids are going the wrong direction an we know it. I have a 15 year old daughter that smokes pot even though she knows it could lead to addiction and I do not approve- I have had the talk with her that if she were to wind up in jail due to a bad choice I would leave her there. Still not sure it sinks in.
You are doing awesome setting boundaries and sticking by them- I know its so difficult to do. Especially when you know the grief you get from your teen from doing so. Sometimes I guess all we can do is guide them but ultimately its there choice.
Sometimes I wish my kid was 3 again. Even those tantrums would be more welcome.

Hey @Sallyanne, I am so sorry this sounds incredibly upsetting. It's good that you can at least get rid of what is in your home. When you say you're preventing him from leaving the house, what do you mean? Here to listen.

Thanks breeze xx he was sneaking out in the middle of the night. I now set the burglar alarm and he doesn't know the code so they will go off if he attempts to go down stairs. I have removed the bedroom door now so I can monitor him more closely. I haven't smelt cannabis for a few days. I'm not daft I know that he will continue but it won't be in my home!
