Teen smoking, trouble with the law, single parent home
by Becky Linscott
I have a 15 year old son. I am a single mother to him and his brother who is 11. For the last year and half, my 15-year old's behavior has drastically changed. He smokes cigarettes, marijuana from time to time, hangs around kids that have been in trouble with the law, he doesn't like to go by my rules, he wants his own way, everyday. I am at a loss at what to do. When I talk and sometimes yell at him about it, he stays very pissed off at me for awhile, as a single parent, what can I do to turn my teenage son's behavior around?
