Thank you for that information. I will definitely look into this. My son attends school when he feels like it!!!!! He is going into yr 11 this year. We have offered to help him get a full time job this year or an apprenticeship but he just won’t work with us. It’s very frustrating. No mental health involvement. We have tried to get him to counselling but he will not have a bar of it. School have offered psych help but he has refused also. We have a 14yr son also with us. My older son will not have anything to do with him which creates problems with seeing our grandchildren. It certainly effects everyone in the family. My husband and I have just engaged with counselling for ourselves and guidance with him. At first we just wanted someone who could mediate for us between him and us but he won’t do anything like that. I can’t believe we are in this situation in my family. Thank you for the support

My 15yr old boys behaviour has rapidly gone down hill in last 9 months. He has left home twice each time for about 2 months and really not knowing where he was for some time. He has now come home again and continues to not live by our rules in our house. Not really hard- no drugs alcohol, respect and honour to family members, check in with us if he wants to go out and tell us where he is going etc. had to call police on him the other night due to him being destructive in and around our home. He uses foul language towards us and verbally abused us. He does not interact with us in our home, refuses to eat with us. Walk outs whenever he feels like it. We know he is doing marijuana and who knows what else. My husband wants to take out a FVRO for protection but am scared this will be a mark on his life for jobs etc. but we can’t live like this anymore. It is destroying me and my family unit. I feel very uncomfortable in my own home as he can be a little unpredictable. We have tried many times to sit and talk with him but he just won’t talk to us and gets very angry. So desperate!!!! Anyone have any experience with FVRO??
