Wow thanks for the responce councelling sounds like a good start. I talk to him ever day and I talk about all sorts of subjects like his day school what hes eaten how was so and so from school today what would u like to do on the weekend. What do u want for dinner tonight. We started once a week were he was cooking one night a week. I think the shift was a good thing because he didnt bring the nasty stealing damaging person with him. He came here to make a giant change.

My son moved to Brisbane about 1 year ago today, from NZ. he was given the love and support from both his father and myself even though we didnt live together. We are not wealthy but he recieved the exspensive material items when he earnt them.My ex and I found it better not to argue in front of our children and settled our arrangements outside of courts so as not to put the children under any great pressure. 3 months prior to my son coming to Brisbane he got involved with the wrong people bad boys a few years older then him who influenced him to do bad things like steal and destroy property's. (At this time i was working fifo and required a residence in Australia for short notice call outs. This was 2 years prior to him living with me full time in Brisbane. My fifo was equal time so i would spend 1 month in oz and 1 month in nz.) At the time of my son going down hill my ex called me and said take your son come and get him. And thats just what I did I flu home packed his things moved him here. He was excited about the change looking forwards to starting again fresh meeting new people. Making new friends. And he was right he has always been academic so hes maintained that level of being in a B+ to A student he excels at math English science i am fully empressed. I have very rearly meet any of his friends although hes meanted to me that young people his age drink smoke take drugs and hes happier staying away from it all. He sits in his room and plays his xbox constantly. I threaten to take it off him and he steals my phone hides my car keys. It takes me days near weeks to get him to mow the lawn. He constantly wants cuddles i understand if we havent seen each other for 9 hours coz Im at work but when he wants 1 ever 5minutes or justs hangs on me and sits there for 1 or 2 hours holding on to me it becomes very smothering. And the arguing the constant battle he has with me. As if he has a right to choose he is so disrespectful to me talks back argues. And when that dosent work he gets up and walks away until night fall making me worry sick about him. He nolonger talks openly about his day to me. Its 1 word sentences. He loved playing basket on Thursday but he just stopped doing anything he basiclly comes home ftom school eats plays his game and sleeps. Thats it. Do i need to be worried.
