Well in the middle of the night last night our 17 yr old son decided to go through his window and run away from home. He claims he isn't happy here. Mom won't let his underage friends bring alcohol into the house, he has to do the dishes every other night, you know the stuff that makes you "bad" parents to a self centered, disrespectful teen.
Anyway my question. We aren't going to tolerate this behavior.We have an older daughter that put us through sheer hell for 14 years. been there done that! Although he is welcome at home, he is choosing to live with his friend and his friends parents. And is refusing to come back home. We however are choosing to hold on to all of his belongings until he emacipates himself. We refuse to be held responsible him if he is not in our care. How do we go about this? Or rather, how does he go about it? We have chosen to force him to act like the adult he claims he is.
