    Ain't nuttin that can be done for me Sereno, but the kids need a whopping and I am not legally allowed. :)

    It's hard to drive alongside kids that are running, I have to pull into driveways to wait for them every block to let traffic around me. :) I need a sign in the back of my car, HOLD ON, I AM TRYING TO TEACH TEENAGERS A LESSON IN MANNERS. LOL

    WELL... have the STATE send them and you down to CRA**Y... I MEAN CABBY OLD ME.

    Sometimes it's better not to chase and just advise the authorities of "kids on the loose". Then you go have a nice cold beer and dinner while things sort themselves out. The kids know where "home" is and will show up with or without escort.

    Roadyy?

    (Been their and done that...no details offered at this time.)

    Oh no Sereno, I made them run home as punishment for not having manners. They had the choice, a month off video games, or to run home, they all chose to run.

    When kids runaway it's a huge PITA for me, I have to call the office and the police, file reports etc. Then go out looking, it takes all night.

    I understand. I had... my son was 15 and in an institution. Not a pretty seen before, during or after. He tore the institution apart every day. The cops called me one night; he had pulled the fire alarm that automatically unlocked the escape doors. Where would he go? Nearest liquor store was my answer and where they found him.

    So ...... another truth from me and I understand at least a little of what you are dealing with.

    BUT, sometimes YOU have to have some faith that at least ONE will be able to have some sense and steer the others. It takes time and authorities must be advised. Most likely, after they have run amuck, they will find you.

    YOU know much more then me. I wish I could help more, but I do feel for you and YOUR husband.

    I am sorry about your son, how is he now?

    EVERY kid comes back to me afterwards. Hang on photo coming of kid who was detained about three weeks ago. I have to take it and upload.


    I can't show my online status on FB as 23 kids instant message me every night. Once they are gone they get it. The kids who are pure gold are the ones who get it while they are here.
    I have one possibly two of those right now. Kid 1 is amazing, I'd adopt him, if I could. Kid 3 is amazing too, but it's only been a month, and they are often really good early on.

    Ok, he was locked up about a month ago, every day I get a letter, at least one. Here's some pics.






    All are 'I am so sorry, I should have listened' letters. Stupid kids. He heard the warnings often enough.

    My fight for my son goes back over 40 years and with my 1st wife. Times and laws have changed. At 15 the State of CA. Could help. At 16 I had to move him to another secure place in Utah for help. My then/now wife would visit and take him fishing with his ... handlers. When he turned 17 he walked out.

    My wife, love, and partner has been so .... never a better person or wife/partner. (guess I'm a little .... grateful right now.)

    I nor his mother have ever heard from him/them since. Younger brother that was very close to him, my other son, off the face of the earth too.

    So... you can feel my old hurts .... as I do yours.

    Let's have some FUN! Come on Down... bring Roadyy and WE set a few things right. (Got a Haitian friend black as coal, 300 lbs with really white teeth. All muscle and a sweet guy....after he be friends.)

    Alex... I, my wife and I, I, my wife and ex and her husband did all that we could do.

    You do what you can. YOU and YOUR husband have the bigger challenge.

    I think that many of use would say.... First off is take care of yourself. If you don't... no one left...

    I understand, and I am better than I used to be. You are right, you need to take care of you in the process, and that used to get pushed to the side, it doesn't anymore, 6 years in.

    It's very hard sometimes when you have kids who are in real trouble. I have a former kid in jail for armed bank robbery, those pics were in the media, so I can share. He calls once a month, and writes twice a month.

    Photo that newspaper published.
