My son is almost 15yrs. old and the last couple of months we have had problems with him lying and stealing... He takes his dads ciggerettes has stold $50.00 from my sister. Snunk out of the house at 1:30 in the morning then lies about it. HELP I am going crazy I just don't understand He is a good kid besides these things I know it doesn't sound like it but he is.We have raised him better then this I am guessing it is marijuiana but of course he says no.Has anyone else been in a simular situation and if so any advice is appreciated.

Well you have to descipline him because he might grow old like that and you wouldnt like to have a thief child.
