I caught him smoking weed after changing schools and things have escalated so quickly. He was also just suspended from school and we are moving him to another school to get away from the kids he is hanging with. I don't know how to get through to him on how much damage he is doing to his brain, body. etc. He is lying all the time and acting very disrespectful. If I try stop him he runs off, Im very much in need of assistance, I wish I had advice but I'm in the same situation. My (privileged) 13 year old has been just been suspended from school, lying, running off if he doesn't get what he wants, hanging with a terrible crowd (with a lot of older kids, some of whom have dropped out of school) and doing drugs. I mentioned changing schools and all hell broke loose. He is angry and aggressive all the time.
