I have a teenager problem so I thought I would appeal to parents of older kids here..
my partners little bro is 15 and has decided to run away from home and live here!!!
the whole reason being that he can't have his girlfriend sleep over..
he says it is unfair because his older brothers were all allowed this.. altho MIL wont say it, I think the reason she changed the rules is cos we got pregnant, which I guess is totally fair enough.
we aren't letting him move in.. we spoke to MIL and she says she is furious but at this time she feels little bro can stay with us until he cools down.. if we are o.k. with it. I dunno if she is going to involve the police if he refuses to go home, but he can't really stay here a long time as our house is pretty much in the process of being completely re done and it's hard enough for us, let alone a moody teenager. anyway I don't think MIL will be very happy if we encourage him to stay she is bloody angry as it is. He is being a general pain in the butt right now.. even to us.. wont talk much and sulks around.. and talks on the phone to his girlfriend for hours and hours at a time on our phone and he keeeps sleeping in even when I try to wake him up.. and then I end up driving him all the way to his school which is a mile away.. I'm even writing him late notes! um.. what is wrong with this picture? DS doesnt want him moving in with older ppl etc who will use him up and he will get into drugs and drinking etc.. but I really can't deal with extra ppl!!!
I told him he will get expelled.. his brothers went to that school and my DP in particular will not soon be forgotten ha ha so they won't go easy on him.. but I think he just wants to leave school and do his own thing.
