Re: dealing with a bipolar son

Are you sure it's not drugs? That kind of behavior, especially with the stealing, sounds like it could be caused by drug addiction.

Anyway, obviously he needs help. That's a tough age too. He's legally an adult, but probably is still dependant on you. I would make your supporting him conditional upon him getting psychiatric help, including taking whatever medications he is prescribed. He really needs it and if he wont' get it voluntarily, then you'll have to force the issue.
