My boyfriend of 17, feels like he has the upper hand. He disrespects he father and his father's girlfriend, of two 1/2 years. Everything he does has to be "Jeremy's way" and if it isn't ... there isn't and 'isn't'. It's always his way. And on top of that he's addicted to weed. He can say he's not a million times. But I asked him to give it up... he said he's willing to give it up for a month but he has to have it once a day to get to sleep... he's addicted, even his doctor suggested therapy to get him off of it. I feel like the weed is more in control of him then he is of himself. Today, he got in school suspension for being tardy multiple times. He told them why give me an in-school when I can take care of things at home. So his dad's girlfriend picked him up, and for the first time he had consequences. He wasn't used to these types of punishments, such as stay home for the rest of the day and his phone was shut off. He doesn't know how to handle this since he has always got his way and knows how to convince people very easily.His guardians try to give him responsibility, but he takes advantage of it. Dad's girlfriend, Patty, thinks of him as her own son and asks very little of him (no smoking on the porch or cars, take out trash, put dirty clothes in basket,ect.) but he can't even do these little things and it's very disrespectful. She's very easy to get along with and talk to, but the way he acts makes her want to change. She's very sweet and I don't want to see her change, but how can my Jeremy change ? What do we need to do to make him change? I need the help before he ends up going down the wrong road.
