You are too funny! You say I am f'd up, but what you fail to understand is that I almost went through the same thing as many other parents. But when push comes to shove, I get mad as h*ll. I already raised 3 teens who are now 20, 23 and 26 and granted when our 23 year old was 16 he tested our parenting. And when we started seeing signs of him being headed down the wrong path, we intervened big time with major rules. I even purchased drug tests that I could use whenever I felt the need and they laid on the table for weeks for all to see. We took his car, and when we took his cell phone, he had the audacity to steal it back. Which really pee'd me off, so I had him watch as I laid it on the garage floor and beat it into a million pieces with a hammer and told him "now if you need it so bad you may have it"! I told him we loved him, but that we would not allow him to throw his life away as we sat back and watched. Whether it been our parenting or his own awakening, either way we were spared placing him in rehab and now he will be graduating from Virginia Tech in a few weeks with a great job offer. So instead of YOU claiming that I am better, you see I am no different but I did not sit and watch my kid deteriorate and hope someone else will fix them.<quoted text>
Your final conclusion is spot on. But your faulting the parents is way to generalized. As a parent of an addict I can tell you, the signs, any sign are not always there. So although I'm sure you felt empowered by your post, and most likely keep reading it over and over to "prove" you really are better than others. You have no idea what your talking about you f@#king idiot. I have met people just like you, with your kind of attitude. All I can say is "WOW" you are really f@#ked up.
