can you get him into some sports during the summer? it may help. my son is doing football practice right now for his school during the summer. or the boys and girls club, if his mind is preoccupied with doing sports or going to camp maybe he wont be tempted to steal.

start checking the friends he hangs out with too! probably getting peer pressured to do these things.

im sure glad my preteen is more interested in riding bikes and going to his friends where he plays video games. but i do worry that will change any minute :(

good luck to you and hopefully you can find somewhere to take him to scare his a s s straight!

Is he on medication for the ADHD? It can make a world of difference. You may have to make him stay at home and not go anywhere until he can show you he can be trusted. There is nothing wrong with not letting them go anywhere unsupervised at that age and you may have to be that drastic to save him from a life like his dad's. Don't be afraid to be the parent and not a friend. The police deartment has some kind of fishing thing they do with kids his age.

no i ain't when i was younger just made poor choice's when i was younger should of listened to my mom about having sex before getting married. My kids are awesome i am trying to teach my kids (son)not to make poor choices in life like mom. i am far from prefect but god damn he's not gonna be another piece of trash that talks shit about ppl. before knowing someone. i got on this site asking for opinion from ppl. not to r have my kids talked about. His dad is just a piece of shit my mom told me to stay away from. we all make mistakes in life but nor i r never regret having him. just regret the guy i had him by. so please frame yourself from talking about me and my son. we don't know u nor do u know us. looks like your from here talking shit on ppl u don't even know. your the type of person i warn him about hanging with.

Actually, obviously she's not, since she is seeking help and advice for her child. From your posts however, this does describe you.
