GRRR! Waitiing on CashHappySon to come over to go with him to pay a traffic ticket. His money, just don't trust him anymore to give it directly to him - it came from his online savings that he has no access to except thru me at this point as he pawned his computer. The judge told him day before yesterday that if the money wasn't there by Feb. 5th he'd revoke his license. First time to ever have a ticket. Speeding.

Of course as his Mom I'm sad & aggravated #1 that he's speeding. #2 that he doesn't have any of his own money on hand to pay it and #3 that he hasn't called to tell me why he's late and #4 I'm just sick of his excuses and #5 that his insurance will go up and #6 that his car insurance premium draft was just refused by the bank. Things are terribly frustrating right now. He's bouncing checks like a madman and refuses to discuss things like a normal adult and is hanging with the worst possible crowd. The discussion got so lively last night that I hung up on him. Hating this!!!

We keep praying that his adult brain cells will kick in anytime now! Pray for us all.

    My thoughts and prayers are with with you and your son. Take care. When my mother was living she told me many time, "This too shall pass". Things will get better!!

    Thanks Myrtle, I say that to myself all the time. Have for years! I know it is true, but I see him on a dangerous path and am yelling like a banshee to warn him of the dangers ahead. Of course, at age 20 he knows much more than Mom and Dad.

    Ugh. Is this what I have to look forward to? Mine son is only nine months, but I can already feel a headache coming on.

    If its any consolation, the frontal lobe (part of the brain in charge of decision making, right/wrong) is said not to be fully developed until the age of 21. Hang in there and I understand your frustration. Parenting is the hardest thing. ((hugs))
