Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
Lots of outrageous and illogical replies.
Some that made no sense.
If OP had accomplished all those things in life he would not have such a loser for a son.

Try better on your next one guys.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 743646



lol, op's son describes the son of every Colonel in the US military.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 793943


Not true. My husband is the son of a colonel and he sounds more "squared away" than OP.

OP you are enabling your son. You need to get him out of your house and let him stand on his own two feet. Tough love. My brother is a lot like your son and is now 56 years old. He is still whining and crying about how life is not fair. After our dad died, he then started in on the extended family for sympathy,money, etc. I love my brother, but he is able-bodied and smart. In fact being smart my be his undoing because he was never content to do "jobs that were beneath him" nor was he willing to really be a risk taker and try to be an entrepeneur. I sincerely hope that your son will find his strength and snap out of it.

Needless to say, hubby and brother don't get along at all. I have heard all of the slacker arguements a thousand times over. The Bible says that he who does not work, neither should he eat. I hold to that truth. We must love unconditionally, but we must not enable. Give your assistance to the widows and orphans.

OP I do think that it may be helpful if you don't point out your superior ways to your son. Everyone likes to think about their own glory days - maybe you could re-engage him with swimming or something when he was feeling successful. I hope that he hasn't just given-up.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
Honestly sir, I'm in a similar situation as your son, and I just want to tell you a couple of things.

#1. Our world is vastly different from when you were growing up. I would not recommend the military at this time, or anywhere in the near future. Perhaps when you were growing up, but we are about to enter an incredibly difficult time and I think it would better if you two stayed together. Even if that means keeping his pizza delivery job.

#2. Talk to your son. Be honest and patient with him. Try and find out what he is actually interested in. I can't tell you the number of times I wish my parents had just sat me down and asked me what i wanted to do with my life, or if I even wanted to go to college or what not.

#3. You need to be direct with him, but let him tell his side of the story. Let him explain himself, and try not to be stubborn and see his side of things, and why he does what he does.

Our geneartion is not going to have the 2 cars in the driveway and a 401K account. We are not going to have anything even somewhat close to what you and your friends had. Times are changing. Freedoms are being taken away and our Government is nearly completely infiltrated.

Sit down with your son and just talk to him. Listen to him.

It will do more than you could ever possibly know.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
I'm 20, male, working the exact same job, living free of charge in my parents house, driving a car my dad bought me. I used to have a World of Warcraft addiction, quit smoking a month ago but was on it heavy for about a year. I do still play Halo every day, I took a semester in college and dropped out due to WoW and not being interested in college. I constantly hear from my parents that this is the opposite of what they did at my age, and it makes me more angry, society looks at people like me as losers and pothead burnouts but I am starting to realize that i'm my own person and I am starting to become very philosophical and interested in psychology. I feel that weed helped open my eyes to the real world and how sick society is in stereotypes and judging others. Just because i'm not in a 4 year studying some major I probably REALLY don't have an interest in doesn't mean i'm not an intelligent human being.

I am telling you right now kicking him out will NOT benefit him at all, he will most likely move into a friends house or sleep in his car and this will lead to severe depression/suicide and more drug use possibly harder drugs. He will start to steal and fall into a life of crime because he has no other choice. It's very difficult to be motivated when you live in the comfort of your loving parents home with everything handed to you. And our generation is starting to see that a life working for the system is a lie and not true happiness, which causes us to rebel and not want to be like our parents. Whether this is right or wrong I feel that I am not in the right place to decide, I am just saying this being in a VERY similar place as your son. We aren't mad at you, we don't hate you, we are just comfortable living life like this and enjoy smoking with friends and just don't want to grow up as fast as you did, and when we look at this attitude we say to ourselves, "who decided the growing up age, what is growing up, why do I need to, I could live like this the rest of my life and die happy." It's sad but true.

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

In the New World there will be no family, no fathers and no sons, only obedient workers living in The Collective being tutored all of their lives on how to support and contribute to the wellfare of the wellfare-state, and it's owners.

Thanks for the New World, dad. Now put that in your sons pipe, and smoke it.

ok buddy I have this to say to you. Dude, u are a loser and a pothead burnout. If everyone’s telling u that, don’t u think it might be true? Yeah, well it is u dumbass. Get the fuck out of ur parents house. This whole generation, and im a part of it im 18, all u guys (im not including myself because Im not a fucking geeky pothead loser), everyone just wants to be happy. Before, ppl wanted success. u will never know the much greater satisfaction of achieving something greater than just having sex or smoking a joint or beating a video game, until u step into the real world, get off ur ass and actually do something good with ur life. Don’t become a fucking psych guy now, every fuckin pothead i know wants to become a psychologist, that’s probably why theres so many wierd fuckin psychologists out there. Listen, all that happened was u smoked a lot of pot and spent a lot of time alone and had a lot of time to think about yourself, ur not like the next Sigmund frued, u have just had time to become a little introverted! Big deal, now get the fuck off ur lazy ass and get back to the real world. Smoking pot isn’t the fucking wonderful thing everyone says it is. Listen, it makes u feel good. That’s a fact. But if ur gonna rely on smoking a joint every day to make u feel good and ur gonna immerse urself in a false virtual world everyday, then ur not gonna get anything done in real life. So just get off that shit and go back to college, listen im being a real dick especially cuz it’s on the internet and theres no consequences for being rude here cuz I don’t know u, and im sorry for using such harsh insults, but listen, ur not any different than any other pot head, and listen one day ur parents r gonna say they’ve had enough, and ur gonna have to face the music, I just hope u can get ur life together before ur parents do it for u and kick u out on ur ass with no job, money, and friends. Dude, ur not becoming “ur own person”. My friend and I were just having the SAME almost word-for-word-exactly-what-u-said talk the other day. He spends so much time staying up high by himself at night, “rediscovering himself”. Im like dude that’s great, but when the fuck r u and “urself”, gonna bring up ur grades and start trying in college, and start getting a job paying more than minimum and ur own car? Yeah, all good questions for both of u guys, so just know there are thousands of potheads out there in the world, that all think they’re just “they’re own person”. Noo, ur just a loser. Sorry. :/ if that’s what u think as ur own person, well to the rest of the world, ur just an idiotic over-philosophical faggot. Now quit ur stupid wow addiction and fuckin get a good job and go back to college! Also, I hate when ppl say the word ‘judge’ with such disdain. What the hell does that even mean anyway? Ppl judge ppl all the time. Its called freedom of speech and expression. This country was built on the right to express your own opinion, and this generation has a problem with that. U know why? Its cuz they’re all faggots but they cant stand to hear the truth. Get over urself, u can ‘judge’ me and I can ‘judge’ u. u don’t see me complain about ‘judgements’ because nobody has anything bad to say about me. I do my work, try hard in school, make money, and I have nothing to be ashamed of. So instead of asking the world to change, maybe u need to change your own life buddy. Go to school and get a real job how bout that then nobody’s gonna ‘judge’ u.

wow thats so typical of a kid in this generation. ur not even from that country probably anyway, ur just scared of ppl finding out whre u really live. how could u speak english then? but anyways check it out, why r u being so insulting to this father? hes trying to help out his son and make him have a successful life. obviously u dont have any kids or any empathy for others, or u could see that what this father is doing is what any father should do. with this new generation, the kids tell the parents what to do. wtf? the parents have been on this earth for much longer than us kids, and so dont u think they might know just a little bit more than us? that they might have just a little bit more experience, cuz they already lived through the same issues when they were growing up? not much has changed in the history of mankind, so we should listen to what older ppl have to say abotu growing up cuz they've been there, done that, and we kid just think we know it all. i totally agree with this father, and the fact that all the ppl on this forum are shitting on him for expressing a need to help his son stop his unhealthy habits, justs shows me even more how much this generation is a bunch of lazy burnout fucks.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
Honestly sir, I'm in a similar situation as your son, and I just want to tell you a couple of things.

#1. Our world is vastly different from when you were growing up. I would not recommend the military at this time, or anywhere in the near future. Perhaps when you were growing up, but we are about to enter an incredibly difficult time and I think it would better if you two stayed together. Even if that means keeping his pizza delivery job.

#2. Talk to your son. Be honest and patient with him. Try and find out what he is actually interested in. I can't tell you the number of times I wish my parents had just sat me down and asked me what i wanted to do with my life, or if I even wanted to go to college or what not.

#3. You need to be direct with him, but let him tell his side of the story. Let him explain himself, and try not to be stubborn and see his side of things, and why he does what he does.

Our geneartion is not going to have the 2 cars in the driveway and a 401K account. We are not going to have anything even somewhat close to what you and your friends had. Times are changing. Freedoms are being taken away and our Government is nearly completely infiltrated.

Sit down with your son and just talk to him. Listen to him.

It will do more than you could ever possibly know.

theres nothing to listen to. did u read the post? all he does is play video games and smoke pot. thats the whole point. theres nothing to discuss, all he needs to do is get off his ass and get a job. there no two ways about it. thats all he needs to do.

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

wow ur obvously not ACTUALLY this guys son. fuckin internet ppl think they can be whoever they want on the internet becuase they dont have to show there face. well even if this was the son speaking, the post wouldve been resolved and taken down by the father out of saying sorry to his son, and also ppl wouldnt still be commenting on it. anyways, ur just posing as his son to try to make him feel bad, and hey fuck you! ur a fucking loser. what u said was stupid anyways. u 'took a class to make ur dad love you'? dumbass! take a class becuase u need to because u have to get a job! holy crap! u know what all anyone cares about anymore is feeling good until the day that they die. just feeling hapiness. well u know what if everyone thinks like that and lives by that philosophy, then the world IS gonna end soon. check it out, did einstein live by that philosophy? thomas edison? obama? did any famous successful ppl live by just trying to feel good until they die? hell no! if ppl lived like that we would never have a computer to post stupid comments on, much less a lightblub or a telephone or structured houses. this world is headed into the shitter, becuase ppl have become so goddaman selfish. its not about helping the world anymore, its just about getting high and doing "what i want". its become the world of the individual. everyones alone all the time in front of a compute screen, in front of a tv screen, or smoking by themself in their basement. this isnt gonna help the world, so at this point ur are just a drain on society man. to the real son i gotta say: just get a life and start contrubuting to the world, or ppl (and ur dad especially) will stop caring what u do and let u ruin ur life by yourself. i just hope that this son doesnt choke on his own vomit or something. (i know it doesnt say he drinks in this article, but he probably experiments with other stuff like every kid nowadays).

whatever

Typical response i'd expect from a from a stoner-derro.
Whilst your at it, dose the little turds lighter up with it as well, so as soon as he goes to rubb his eyes, pick his nose, or wipe bong-grott off his face BAMM! happy days.

Hey retard, why not learn a little grammar before trying to criticize me?

Typical lesser human.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 782916


why the fuck would u bother arguing about grammar! that is the typical loser fucking response when some one says something u dont like on the internet. argue the point, not the grammar, he was just typing fast and made some mistakes who cares?

420 is my favorite part of the day! I have big money in the bank. My house is already payed off. Big deal! Your kid is an ass because he learned all your worse traits.
You and your type are all the same, u push your will on everyone. You r not special and neither are your attitudes. Your son probably has a endocanabinoid deficiency. But you wouldnt know anything about that because u r so smart.
Sounds to me like your son is striking out because you r mean to him and disrespect him.

WTF would YOU do?
 Quoting: 18E 802891


if he lives with you, kick him out. let him sink or swim. obviously you wont let him end up turning tricks on the corner for crack money but scare him into responsibility. i really believe the only way you can really learn, is by doing it yourself.
