Answer: Dear M.: There are a lot of things to try…like counseling but when a youngster decides to take over his own life this way it is sometime nearly impossible to stop him. If he really wants to make a point about being independent, he can actually choose to refuse an education and to ruin his life. You aren’t the police and your husband probably doesn’t want to hear about it or face it. There are kids who do this and then never leave home. Let him know he isn’t going to be one of them. I am so sorry. You deserve so much better. Blessings, Luise
