    My son took a "walk" at about 4pm today. He's 15 and has a lot of anger, he's done this before, not a huge thing. As of 1am now, he still hasn't returned home. Police were told but I could use some prayers and smoke for his safe return.
    Thanks

    I will pray for your son and family. I've been through this, his anger is not a disorder, it is a syptom of something deeper, help him to find it. May God bless you.

    I'm sorry to hear about this difficult situation. Hopefully there will be a safe return without further delay and you can find out the cause of these issues.

    Prayers for the family. Get him to talk with a third party about his anger. I'm really glad he's home and I know you're relieved.

    Thank you, Hoof. His anger comes from pain and the pain from events beyond his, and my, control. The disorders he has are also real but merely shape the way he expresses the pain / anger. We are trying to deal with both sides of the coin. Blessing on you and yours, also.
    He came back not 45 minutes after I posted asking for prayers. Truly, God is not limited by time and a prayer today can help solve yesterdays problem. I can guess as to the cause of his issues but until he learns to understand and forgive and love, he will live in his own prison.
    He is (We are). Everyone in my family has issues, mental or physical. No stigma for getting help. We all are made to live in community, giving and receiving in turn.
    Yes, I posted the first time he walked away. This was his third time. He was back by dark the first two times, so this really put the fear into me.

    Again, thanks to everyone for your smoke and prayers. They are appreciated.
    It slightly shames me to visit this sub-forum so rarely and then get such a loving and caring response when I am in need. I need to work on that...

    I am new, so pardon me if I add something. I do not wish to offend.
    He is old enough to start thinking he can do everything himself. Maybe he can, maybe he cannot. He seems to want to do that anyway.
    I hope he can learn from these experiences for the times when he really is on his own. Those times come to all of us at any age.
    I am sober, and a veteran, so I can relate. His experiences will hopefully give him something to share about with the people that he can trust.

    So happy this turned out well. I’m also happy to see your family is working to resolve what you can with him. I attended a funeral this week for a 13 yo nephew of my wife. He took his own life due to bullying in school. Keep him close, let him know you are there for him, and keep working on that resolution. God will help him and you as well especially with the community holding you all up in prayer. We will add you to those we continue to ask for Gods grace in our prayers.
