Can a ADHD teen ever go out unsupervised??????????
My son is 14 yrs. Everytime I try and trust him to do anything responsible he lets me down........I sit on pins and needles waiting for the dreaded phone call. I tell him your not capable to go away from home and be able to make the right decisions. Last night after much debate I said ok I'll give it another try. He was with another trusted teen friend. We went through our normal drill of the rules and expectations. Phone rings, Maam this is security from the mall. We have your son here for shoplifting!!!!!!! Shoplifting I wanted to just DIE right on the spot. He met up with someone totally different in the mall and decided to steal. The trusted friend said mom I don't know why he did that. I said i don't know why either. I have such a great fear that he will end up in a Juvinile Detention. What am I supposed to do keep him home with me at all times?????. Can he ever be trusted again??????? I am praying for some answers?????? I prayed to God, Lord this is your child, You said you will not leave him or forsake him. Show us the way!!!!!!!! $300 later and a Down and out Mom. I can't even speak to him. I have no words!!!!!!!!
