Well, happy birthday to me.
Take him back to the Pdoc.
Happy Birthday Conmama,
I'm sorry to hear you are still struggling with your ds.
First of all, thanks for not smacking my hands today CF and Sabrtooth!
Hugs to you, and happy birthday, fellow '59er.
Many gentle hugs, conmama. I'm sorry that you're ds still doesn't get it. We've gone through the pot thing with both boys, Jason his senior year (and the occastional use during college) and Justin when he went off to college and up to as recently as this spring although for part of that time he was married and on his own and there wasn't much we could do about it. For Jason it just took maturing to get over it. Justin made a conscious decision that - even though he very strongly believes pot should be legalized and I don't disagreee - since at this point it's not and he wants to be a cop he needed to clean up his act. I hope something happens to trigger your ds to want to stop for himself, not just because he'll be grounded and won't have the opportunity. One thing we did with Justin when we were helping him out financially was that we rarely gave him cash. We would give him gas cards, I'd buy groceries for him, we'd give them gift cards to restaurants - but we didn't want our money going to drugs.
Hugs and Birthday wishes to you Conmama!
I LOVE that idea of no cash!
My kids never had just med-check visits.
it's funny you mention this, as I was going to see what happens next week as his meeting.
