My son is 17. He is in trouble (yet again) with school and the law. He is struggling in all aspect of his life. He has turned his back on God. He continues to defy us (his parents) and authority.
He is increasingly belligerent, explosive, verbally abusive-using foul language, breaking things in our house, and dishonest. He has now stolen from us and others. He admittedly is smoking cigarettes, marijuana, spice and using alcohol. We suspect other harder drugs as well.
We have tried to do everything we can–have tried many times to talk with him and get to the root of things–he just blocks us out. We have disciplined over and over again. We have medical and psychological professionals involved, are in contact with his school and guidance counselor, have his grandparents and other family involved and praying. But still he continues on this destructive path. We have spent many, many days and nights on our knees praying for him. Entire nights praying, crying, worrying when he has left without permission and do not know where he is or if he is safe. We are ready to give up…feel so defeated…feel so hopeless…feel so heart broken for him….
Please pray for our son. He needs Gods divine intervention now. Please pray that God will give us strength and guidance to endure this difficult time.
