My heart goes out to you. I worried so much about my son when he was a teenager, and I finally realized that I had to put my faith in God that my son would be okay. He got into some trouble with one of his friends that he grew up with when he was 16yrs. old. And after that he realized that he and his friend were growing apart and growing up. My son now is grown, working, and doing okay. His friend is serving time in prison. So just have faith that your son will realize that he needs to think about what is right for him, and all that you have taught him so far in his life, and I am sure that he will be fine. It doesn't matter how old our children get, we as mothers, are always going to worry. I will keep you and your son in my prayers. God Bless You both.

well if you just talk to your son and explain to him that you're vey worried ...im sure he'llunderstand and keep out of trouble. after all youre the one who was there for 16 years !
