Your 18 year old sounds like my 13 year old in some sense!! Good for you finding your way here. Parenting is an unpredictable journey and we are very brave for being parents. Love yourself today. Cheers WhaeaM

Thank you! I'm trying to keep my sense of humour - but at the moment it's a challenge. I'm also the sole sibling with my brother interstate, elderly parents living across the road, it feels like a perfect storm.

I can see we have a few new members- welcome to the ReachOut Parents forums!
If you aren't sure where to start, you can make a new discussion topic here to tell us a bit more about what is happening with your teens

Hey there @queenmama83 - really glad that you found us.
Sounds like things have been tough recently with your 15 yo - sorry to hear you've been having sleepless nights
Do you want to share a bit more about what's been going on?
There are lots of parents here struggling with different things going on in their families - it's a non judgmental space for support.

Thank you so much for reaching out at such a difficult time. It sounds like your son has a lot going on and is really struggling right now. I am wondering if you would be interested in sharing a bit more about what is happening? You can start a new discussion here
There are also a few topics other parents have started that talk about teens turning to weed that you might find helpful @blondemum has started a topic yesterday here , @workingdad2 spoke a while back about cannabis here and @ihavefailed made a topic here. You are definitely not alone

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
