My 16 year old son has refused to live at home for the last 3 months. He would rather live at his friends house (where there is little discipline and few house rules).
He is making no contact with us, and appears to be happy.
We have asked his friends parents not to let him stay there as we have lost all control over him. They however say that they are doing a good thing by keeping him Off the streets. The police will not get involved because he is 16 and not considered to be in danger.
He is not at home causing problems - so it is not the usual scenario.
