          Why A Mom Says She’s Afraid Of Teenage Son


          September 27, 2018

          Christa says that since her soon-to-be ex-husband, John, moved out of the house two years ago, their 16-year-old son, Jake, has dropped out of band, refuses to go to school, has become addicted to video games, and is aggressive, defiant and violent.

          “I am afraid of Jake at this point,” says Christa, adding, “Things have gotten so bad that I have had to call the police twice.”

          She says the divorce “Has really affected Jake in a negative way.”

          Christa and John agree they aren’t on the same page when it comes to parenting their son.
