Stop being such a douche for one.

Maybe you should smoke with your son, and then you can understand why it's such a hit (pun intended).

I can't stand fathers like you.

Lay down the law. You are enabling him.

Start charging him rent. Make him pay his own bills, insurance and video game subscription.

I agree with this poster. Show some support. He's enjoying life, and we only get to be young once.

Things will change in a few years. Just give it time, and be supportive. You are not your son, and your son isn't you. You cannot make your son do anything against his will, and if you try to push too hard it will only push him away from you (in a very bad way).

Toughen up.

It sounds like your son, apart from having fun, is rejecting your advice, I would guess, largely because he does not want to become a squared-away military/banking type like you.

That isn't too hard to understand, is it?

For such a well-disciplined guy it sounds like you didn't pass it on to him too well. Part of it may be you, part of it may be the fact that this culture encourages young people to be shiftless, worthless, entitled little parasites.

Tell him you'll kick him out into the street if he does not get a grip and become a responsible human being who can carry his own weight in life without someone to wipe his ass for him.

Then if he does not get it together, follow up on it and make him fend for himself. He will sink or swim. If he lives long enough, he may thank you for it. If he does not, or becomes a homeless drug addict, that will be one of the sad vagaries of life that you will have to live with.

It's a hugely imperfect world.

I agree with both of these posters.

I can remember 20 years old...on my knees in the middle of the road begging my father to come fight me...SCREAMING at him calling him a coward.

Because he was just like you, maybe a little less wealthy.

Now I'm almost 30...and we are best friends.

Because we BOTH changed.


Enjoy your life. Is all that money/job/etc worth your son, and your respective relationship with him?

Maybe dad never was around to spend time with him when he was younger.

There were 20 years leading up to now, correct?

(Always wanted to say that) That's fine and dandy, I'm an authoritarian asshole, great, fine I accept that, I was not handed everything on a platter, but don't you pothead sensitive type slackers realize that these fucked up female'ish "my ffewlings are hurt" attitudes are gonna lead to a shitty, poor, dependent life? I mean fuck, the USA is going 100% turd world, people cant be leaches here ANY more. The price of failure in the turd world is DEATH. Nobody is gonna feed yer sorry asses don't you get it? you can't go through life thinking that all you gotta think about is the next days events. I just don't get it, I made 600 bucks a month in the Army when I joined. I saved it ALL I had 65 grand in the bank when I got out all I thought about was the future, I know that most you here are pothead loser types, thats why I'm tryin to get a handle on this defeatist attitude you have. Is it the drug? I mean can it be reversed? how long does it take for that "pothead laugh" (as Dr. Drew describes it) take to go away?

Go to your phone book and look up your local Alanon group.

Alanon is full of people who love or care about addicts. There is a vast store of knowledge there about techniques you can use to cope with this situation.

Most colloquial "wisdom" about what to do can actually prolong their dysfunctional behavior.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
Dad,
I'm 20 years old. I have a job. Do you know how many don't have jobs? I have one. Does that mean anything? It doesn't pay what you think I should make, but I perform an important service, cooking for others, delivering their food.

It gives me money to do what I want. Do you know what I want, Dad? Do you care what I want?

I don't want to join the military. I think it's wrong to kill people because someone tells me to.

So I smoke a little, snort a little. I want to enjoy life and not think about all the problems, the wrongs, the injustice, the hypocrisy.

Sure I've been busted for drugs. I don't think the laws are fair, necessary, or even legal. Should I set out to change that? Would that embarrass a military man?

Do you see what the world is like? How long will it go on? Wouldn't you like to enjoy it while it lasts?

I don't save. Why should I give the bank my money, knowing they may steal it like they've stolen everything else they can get their hands on.

I took a class for you, Dad. Did you know it was for you? I don't want to go to college, don't want to join the military, don't want to have 6 figures in the bank. But I took the class. It was saying, I love you, in a way I can't verbalize.

I don't know yet what I want, but know clearly what I don't want. I'm 20 Dad. Only 20. Maybe some day I'll be as wise as you. Maybe I'll even make some of the choices you made, but until then, help me find myself.

I'm sorry about your cars. You know I'm sorry. I'm sorry you feel the way you do. But know this, Dad. I love you. And would love nothing more than having the love returned.
Love,
Your Son
