Simply accept your son is not you and will probably never want, believe or aspire to the same as you..That's life my friend.//there is no right or wrong just personal choices. But if you want to give him a reality check tell him it's time for him to leave home, but if you don't want him to go than simply accept he is different.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
I'm sorry for all the negativity you have received here, and I'm doubly sorry for your sons lack of ambition. This is an epidemic problem and I don't think it has much to do with pot, as it does the general attitude of young people. I'm 28, but I can already see it getting much worse then even I ever imagined possible. My peers expect to have all the luxuries of the world handed to them for very little work.

I worry for the future of our country as I have a real hard time identifying hardly ANYONE with leadership potential, let alone ambitious, skilled critical thinkers.

Sadly there probably isn't anything you can do about it.

Personally if my son were 20, and wanted to fuck off any play video games, I would have to let him go, and probably try to have another one with a younger, smarter woman and try again.

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).

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?

rantYou guys are all fucked up. This 20 year old should get off his lazy ass and start acting like a man should. He is an over grown creep who lives off the sweat of his fathers hard earned money. A lazy ungrateful disrespectful waist of space who lives in the comfort of a military hero who risked his life to save ours. A Dad should be honored and respected by his son for the blood in his veins and the stiff of his neck. This generation sucks. Freaks losers lazy pinheads who could tell the difference between hammer or a wrench. Keep enjoying all things we built and all the things we made cause its coming to an end and soon you can go back to dancing around a fire and putting rocks on the dead.
I would kick his fag ass to the curb change tge locks and the will. I take great pride in taking care of my parents and building relationships with wise old men. There is quite a difference between 6 figures and pizza delivery boy. The father is right and to all those a-pose remember this, children have fought wars, ruled countries and made the very designer cloths you were today. the joke is on you ass clowns.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
Does anyone remember...?

we are all son's, daughter's, mothers and father's. Think about this... the only way humans survived to become the dominant species(?) on this planet was to be social and cooperative. Yes, sometimes we ate our young or our elders, but ultimately this was both counter, as well as, productive to 'our group survival'. For 3.5 million years we have struggled to become who we have become. In a little less than 10 thousand years we have managed to destroy all that we, as a succession of thousands of generations, have struggled to become.... Within the last 500 years we discovered the opportunity to 'sell' our labour and become less. Within the last 50 years we discovered the ability to sell or destroy life and all life, ... within the last 15 years we discovered the ability to live off of the conscience of our 'human ancestry' and what media tells us is good or bad... and that by the very single aspect of living and breathing (and because we have a 'conscience') the very fact that we live and breath is a right at the expense of any other. The tragically distressing aspect of this is that our attitudes and perspectives are CONSCIOUS (albeit conditioned) decisions to accept or reject... or understand the pressures, miscalculations, conditioning, or succumbing of any single individual or group of individuals to the conditions in which any of us are trying to survive or told that we must survive. And so our history continues....

I cannot f'ing believe that 'we' are so stupid to think that ANY OF OUR CHILDREN OR PARENTS are anything more or less than a product of 'us' and our evolution, or current technology, and our immensely and entirely brainwashed perspectives...!!! Are we (or am i) simply stupid...??? or are we/i just very, very, very naive.

Does no one get it???

The conflict has ALWAYS been there!!!

What has allowed us to survive is the fact that the wisdom and experience of the 'fathers' could and always was balanced and advanced by youth and strength. This no longer applies... in the context of our current mindsets and technology... well you unconscious ignorant, and dignant idiots figure it out... and appreciate the summary, in tragic poem from,


Life for your son:
Drugs, sex, and violence, programmed in my head. Living for the dollar, makes me feel so dead. Daddy cast me out, his face became so red. Your a piece of shit. That is what he said. I am all alone now, with no place to call home. I'll take another hit, feelin' oh so stoned. Maybe I'll go bike, take the pressures off my mind. Wait there's the 5.0, shit man, never mind. What to do with my life? Find a job? Find a wife? Maybe I'll save me the trouble, and end it all with a knife.

Life for you:
Boy oh boy, times are rough, damn it I've had enough. Boy of mine, clean your room! If you don't, it will be your doom. Bills to pay, things to fix. Living like this 9 to 6. I'm getting old, my story is told. My family is there to hold.
Overtime get's me stressed, the boss was not impressed. Anger fills me, what to do? Boy you better pay me soon! Pay me now, worthless child. Get a job, don't you smile! Greed has got me, I'm enslaved. Working nonstop, my life's been depraved. Depraved of good memories, depraved of good times. It's okay I have money. I take my son's dimes.

~Obviously you have no real relationship with your son at all.
Go understand the pain he is feeling. Let him understand your pain. Then hug it out.


With so much gratitude...,

Love him and protect him he is your son. Its tough in america at the moment and maybe as a lot of young people feel that there is no real future for them and they just wait for whatever disaster is going to happen. Dont kick him out you would put his life in danger and the military is not a resort unless you want to put his life in danger. Be a dad and be close. Do you even hug him or maybe thats not manly. He is a kid and a 20 year old today is less mature than a 20 year old in the 70s or 80s. Dont know why but that seems to be a trend. Anyway sounds like depression so just love him and talk.

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

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
Wow, from most of what I've read here so far, we should all just smoke pot. I used to smoke pot... then I grew up. Became a mom and raised a loser. I'm not in the military, and I'd love for my son to make something of his life, something that he is proud of. But if all you younguns are proud of is SMOKING POT all day, is that really ANY kind of accomplishment? For REAL. I'm not a six figure, I was poor my entire childhood and most of my young adult life. I came from a broken home, was sexually molested and raped at 12 and 13 years old. Got knocked up by a complete loser and left him the day I found out I was prego. That is when I became strong, grew up and decided that no matter what, I had to be a good person. Which generally speaking, I always had been. With the exception of the bad things I did in high school, I've always strived to be morally good and have a 110% work ethic and to help people. Where did *I* go wrong? My son smokes weed, he used to do meth and a bunch of other crap (pills, etc), but he still smokes weed and that K2 shit. Probably still drinks some too. He is lazy, irresponsible, entitled to everything.. so much that he steals from his family. His little sister, his little brother, his grandpa, me, his stepdad, the 83 yr old lady across the street. ALL to pay for his freaking DRUG HABITS. Well, at least when I did do drugs, it didn't make me mental or psychotic, like it does him (he has mood swings like you wouldn't believe, holes punched in my walls, broken windows, etc) and I never stole anything so I could have money to go get high. I had a job. And like I said, I grew up! Why would somebody keep doing that to themselves AND their family by stealing for drugs????????????????????
Why can't you people these days be STRONG enough to yes, have some occasional fun.. go out for a drink or two, smoke a bowl, but be strong enough to get through life and all of it's hardships without self freaking medicating? What is so darn wrong with FEELING? Bunch o pussies, perhaps?

Try this,
If he loves BMX, you should encourage him to get sponsored & go pro. So he can get paid doing what he loves....Ofcourse he's got to be good..?? These days with the internet & youtube he can make a "SPONSOR ME" video and send it directly to the BMX companies which are always open to talented riders... I grew up in a similar way & became a pro-snowboarder at 18(1993) it changed my life drastically and got me out of my parents basement enabling me to see the world like a rock star...
