I am also worried about one of my kids because he had to go to jail yesterday. Since he is 16 he had to go to real jail not a juvenile detention center. I know that he made dumb decisions but I can't help worrying because, face it, a 16 year old is still a little kid in many ways. He is one of those kids you can't help but like. I would basically compare him to a Ferris Bueller type of personality.
If you don't know what that means: 1. Go watch that movie NOW, and 2. I will explain. He is always up to something and usually breaking the rules. He is mostly inappropriate to be honest but, at the same time he is charming. In other words, he drives you nuts but you are still concerned about him. At times I feel he may be duping me because he knows how to play the system. I am OK with that though because I will always feel like it is my role to support a kid. Hopefully, he will survive this obstacle and learn from it.
