2 Teens - drugs - Who's lying?
Okay, I'm not sure where to start… And this may not be easy-to-follow! my stepson 15 was caught smoking weed & stealing our alcohol several months ago. We know that his friends continued to do so. He's claiming he no longer is. His bio mom has been questioning him a lot. My stepson confides in my son (19) frequently. My son is indicated he thinks stepson is still using. My son also told me that my daughter (16) bought a friend a pipe to smoke pot. On one occasion my daughter had a friend over and there was coughing coming from her bedroom followed by burning of incense. As I said, my stepson's bio mom has been questioning him a lot lately. During this questioning my stepson said that my daughter is buying things over the Internet. I believe it's in regards to the pipe that she actually bought for my "stepson's friend". She Admitted to me yesterday that she bought it for him and that this friend also asked her to buy synthetic weed over the Internet recently. She said she told him no. I'm just not sure if my stepson is lying about my daughter using to try to deflect the situation or if she could possibly be using. I'm not One of those parents that would say not my kid! There was reference to her using an illegal prescription drug. I don't see where child would go from not doing anything to such a big abuse problem. Wouldn't there be other progressive drugs in between? Such as smoking weed drinking, cigarettes, etc.?
Here is what we "know"… Stepson was caught smoking pot and drinking. bio daughter bought pot pipe for stepsons friend.
It's been hard with the blended family because they don't respect me is an authority figure. They feel that all I do is come down on them. I comedown I'm my own children too. It's funny how stepchildren on both sides feel that we favor our own bio children more. My 19-year-old of course doesn't want to get in the middle of it and hasn't told me much recently. I've tried not to let my stepson know where I'm hearing these things. At this point he thinks it's from his bio mother. The bio mother is notorious for inflating stories and lying. I believe that whatever her son told her very easily could have been inflated regarding my daughter. My daughter is on prescription medication due to PCOS. I'm wondering if my stepson said she ordered things over the Internet & is taking prescription drugs (referring to her prescribed meds). He probably was being questioned by his mother and wanted to make himself look better.
I have no other proof of my daughter actually using anything. She doesn't hang out with friends frequently and his anxiety issues & never handled the divorce well. She recently dropped out of school and is home 95% of the of the time. She has ADHD and things failed miserably for her in high school. She does things such as sewing, baking, and has been very helpful around the house recently. Of course she didn't like these allegations. I'm just not sure if I'm missing something with her or what?
