One thing you said that really stood out.....m Posted by Woody on 3:57:55 pm - February 8, 2011
....was " ...the house has been so much nicer.... but there's no conflict when he's not here. and #4DS is so much happier when he doesn't have his brother bullying him"
Sorry, I don't know how old your problem child is. If he is 18+, maintain the newfound sanity and peace in your home. He needs to find somewhere to live unless he wants to clean up and treat everyone with respect. Sit down with him and tell him how nice it's been without his drama and attitude. Give him a chance to try and blend in....not likely, I know, but I think you need to give him an opportunity. If you find he's disrupting your home again, show him the door. Sounds like he has nowhere to go.
If he's under 18, it's a little different. If you've already taken away his phone, money and car, he won't give a shit about not having a door or furniture. Try counseling or try making it until he's 18 and then show him the door.
You have the right to a safe and peaceful home. He has the right to be an asshole but there's a price to be paid for that choice. Until the price is high enough he'll keep choosing that. His friends have already bailed on him....when he has nowhere else to go it may sink in that he needs to grow up.
Sorry this is so rambling...I feel your pain but have not had to walk in your shoes. Hugs to ya......
