Hi @Thegooddadntb and welcome to our forums! And thank you for reaching out to get support - it sounds like a really challenging situation with your son.
I have edited a few things from your post just to keep with our guidelines around confidentiality which you can check out here .
I also think you might benefit from creating your own post over here and explain a bit more about what's going on so that our other members can provide you with some insights and supports.
It's important that you know that we are an Australian based forum, so we best support people within Australia - particularity when it comes to referring to services, and giving advice around where to go for support.
However, you may still benefit from hearing other parent's experiences and ideas.
Hope to hear from you again soon

Hello. I am a mum to two girls aged 14.5 and 12.
1. I danced with my daughter and couldn't stop laughing as it had been a while since I danced
2. Take lots of deep breaths
3. I saw an advert behind a bus.
4. Be patient
5. Relaxing and recharging

Welcome to the forum @Veronica, and thank you for answering the questions. It sounds like your dancing was loads of fun, and a great way to bond with your daughter.
Weekends: Relaxing and recharging - the perfect weekend!
We look forward to seeing you around the forum

Hi everyone. I hope I have come to the right place.
1. I am a stepmother to a 16 year old girl.
2. To de-stress I drink wine.
3. My step daughter is 16 and had her Year 10 senior pathways night at school last night. We went along and she was so overwhelmed and her anxiety rose to 100% and she ended up lashing out at the people trying to help her - her dad and I. I realised that she lack resilience and emotional intelligence and I want to help her build those in preparation for Year 11 + 12 and the rest of her life.

We are not a counselling or crisis service and we can't guarantee you'll get a reply, so if you need to talk nowClick here for help
The current time is Fri, 2:31 AM

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.
