Hi, flame.

I wonder if you and your son (and possibly husband) have sat down and talked through what actually happened, why he thinks he stole the purse, and what the Sheriff said is going to happen.

I can't quite understand what the ramifications are of his having "confessed" to a crime (stealing a purse is a crime, isn't it?).

Is there going to be a prosecution?

I can't see how giving your son money would help the situation. Does he ask for money? Has that been an issue-- ie conflict about his having no job, wanting money from you?

If he has a psychiatrist or therapist, have you or could you have a family session?

Do you feel that you understand what's going on with your son? Is it very hard to talk to him? One thing, among others, that's missing is where he stands, how he reacts emotionally on all this--

You perhaps feel helpless and at a loss, your husband I guess is angry and perhaps also feeling helpless-- that's very superficial, of course-- but where is your son in all this?

Is he close to you, to a friend, to anyone?

It's very difficult, but working jointly as a family really could help--if there's any way of doing it-- help all of you accept the difficulties and find a way to move forward. Perhaps?
