Just need to vent any parental advice would be appreciated. My 16 yr old son, who happens to be "in love" is driving me INSANE!!!! He is basically a good kid. But full of vinegar and disrespect! The most recent episode this morning. We've been allowing him to ride to school w'his girlfriend and her mom. It helps on mileage for us, and I pick them up in the afternoon and drop her off. Recently the girlfriend got her license. My son has his permit but we feel he is too recklous to be on his own as of now. Her mom lets her drive. I told him she was too inexperienced to be driving them both to school w'out supervision. And in no way was he to ride with her. Well this morning we met her step dad and a passenger pulling out. I couldn't tell it was her MOM! My son of course doesn't see the sense in calling me to tell me till after he was at school. He had ample time to call me before I got too far down the road, but he chose not to. I of course tear into him over the phone. He says "well we made it ok" Not the point I tell him. Ya'll had this premeditated and you deliberatly disobeyed and disrespected me and my instructions. This child is constantly trying my sanity . He is not the normal type teen. He's T-1 diabetic, insulin dependent, he recently had heart surgery. And he does NOT take care of himself. Not to mention how far the relationship has gone at such a tender age. He's lied to us numerous times and it seems he only cares about this girl. I ask him how can he care for someone else when he can't even take care of his own health?! He thinks he is all grown up, you know "a man". I keep telling him he don't know squat. Being a man isn't what he's thinking at all!! Sorry to be so long winded . I'm trying to calm down and keep myself from choking him when I see him this evening. But I am FED UP! Any words of wisdom for me before I do him bodily harm?
