I just found weed in my 17 year olds dresser. Here is what I am struggling with, it was brought to my attention by my youngest who did the right. Now I must set an example that works on both ends. Struggle number two, my 17 year old just moved back from two months away because of previous issues. What is bothering me is my fear of confrontation and my absolutely loss of what to do. My instinct is to flush the weed and throw the pretty little glass thing and say nothing and wait until I know exactly what to do.

Sorry you're facing such a tough situation! It's definitely not easy to know what sort of boundaries to lay down when you run into an issue like this. Especially when you're reluctant to push your son into leaving your home. That's why I think it might be a good idea to get some professional advice. Is there a counselor you know of that you can talk to? If not, from my time at Focus on the Family, I know they have counselors you can talk to by phone for free (1-855-771-HELP). I've even seen them post advice on another forum (http://bit.ly/GJeFb3 and http://bit.ly/GEtzk2) about some similar dilemmas. So, I think they could probably help here. Just a thought. Well, I hope some of this information is helpful. Hang in there!

As a teenager and parent i can promise you that one third of your childs class mates have used weed, and one sixth use it regularly. I can also promise you that if you ignore it then your child will know you disposed of it but wont stop because of the ease of getting more, although its harder to face it i can only implore you do as it will ruin anithing good about your son/daughter and weed will only dig its claws in deeper. use threats or financial incentives but be strong for the long run.

I went through the same thing. I caught my daughter in her room one night smoking pot. I was so angry. I was also in college in the police academy. I called my lieutenant and spoke to him about the matter. I didn't want to get her in trouble but I wanted to scare the crap out of her in the hopes that she would never do it again. He told me to bring her in and I did. I left her there and made her give the crumbs that she had left and went and cried in the parking lot where she couldn't see. After about 45 min. in his office she came out crying and it was over. This may or may not work for you but it did for me. I played with drugs when I was young and I was not under any circumstance going to allow my children to even attempt to do any such things. I was luck that I didn't hurt myself and I didn't want to see them suffer. As I said this may not work for you but it did for me. Good luck, I know its hard, I hope it works for you......
