I am posting for prayer requests
Teresa (honeybee) and I Have taken temporary of her grandson James. JV knows him.
Since Teresa left Greenwood James has had no upbringing or education.
We are trying to get this corrected and on the right track to stay out of jail and get an education.
There are times he reverts to his old ways but so far he is clear with the drug tests
All I ask is a good thought or prayer for me Teresa and James.

How are things going now? You and Teresa are getting jewels in your crowns. Hang in there. Every life is worth it. At some point he will see right from wrong. It just takes maturity which takes time. More for some.

Things have improved greatly, I have calmed down and so Has James. He has met some good friends during December and goes back to school Monday the 8th, where he will meet more people. He had a great Christmas for the first time in years and Dang that boy can Eat Some Food :shock: :shock: :D

That's great Jerry , never give up. Yet never give in. As a mechanic, you should know. That the squeaky wheel always gets the grease. Just keep on greasing that wheel. It will eventually smooth itself out.

Well it is over, James gave up, could not tolerate the rules or going to school. He is on his way to Greenwood and probably back to jail.

Very sad. Hopefully one day soon, he will learn to grow up and realize that his family loves him and nothing can take its place.

it took him 18+ years to get to the state he in in now, and he won't change overnight. Also, no matter how hard you try, some people are just "different" for lack of a better term. No matter how much you want to help them, and no matter how bleak it seems for them, they just don't care.

He's somewhere between a man and a boy, where its time to start acting like a functioning adult, but maturity wise he's probably still a young kid... From what i gather, he hasn't had a lot "guidance" in his life until recently, and a lot of young men in his shoes would want to "buck" authority when he's never had to follow rules. It may take some hard hard lessons to every get him to change his attitude, and that is a "IF" he wants too change it.

Anyway, I guess what i'm trying to say, is don't give up on him, but don't destroy yourself worrying about him. At some point he's got to live with his choices.

sometimes all you can do is pray for someone

Greg, when he was In Greenwood he had no guidance at all then just just let him run wild and i hate to say it his mom only used him to get her way with others. Deep down James is a good kid but all these years of running wild has had a big impact on him, looks like right now all we can do is keep him in our prayers and give him all the support we can along with Jerry and Teresa.

OK my friends I have an update on James.
When he went back to Greenwood yesterday he found out real fast he was a phone call away from jail . This morning he contacted me about coming back.
I told him I was fed up with his Greenwood attitude, his know it all attitude and the fact that he thinks he does not need an education.
I have been LIVID since Teresa took him back there and she spent the night with her Mom.
I agreed for him to come back here and stay and had a Family meeting when Teresa and James got here. Yes I blew up and told both of them what and why I expect them to follow the rules. Teresa has been treating him like he is a 5 year old child.
This has been a serious family crisis for me, I will not tolerate any more of his BS or Teresa treating him like he is a kid. He is 16 with jail time just hanging over him.
Come to find out his dope head Mother is the cause of this by telling him his grandfather has 6 weeks to live.
Sorry for the rant and I am still livid about the whole deal. But this is MY house and you will live by My rules. No kid is going to boss me around, especially if he does not have a job, does not have an education and all he thinks about is being a dang thug.
The first thing I told him when he walked in the house is pull your pants up, there is no way you will live here like that.
Sorry I had to vent

Patience.

From the sounds of it you have your hands full. But he made a mans decision by asking for help when needed.

That’s a great start.

Take it one day at a time. If he has no foundation u have to be extremely patient. U have to teach him his new foundation and show him the path he’s on. Bucking is his norm. His defense when he gets in a pickle.

Help him change that. Teach him to grab the bull rather than bucking.

I stand behind you Jerry and wish there was more I could do but keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
I have always said Ashley is the main problem with James and she uses anyway she can to hold it over Teresa's head....what she needs is a good butt whipping but that's to late now.
