    I am seeking advise on behalf of my 21 year old son. He has graduated LE Academy and has passed his state test. He is now in the application process and has taken two polygraph exams with both results ending up with a "Thanks but no thanks" letter. In his discouragement, he shared with me his experience. I now have a question I am having a hard time to get answered.

    I would rather ask this question in a PM than in a public forum.

    Thank you in advance
    OK. Give it a shot.
    Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

        Not to be disrespectful, but he really should be the one asking this question of the forum.
        I don't check to see if the glass is half full, I make sure its not dirty.

          Relax, he's ONLY 21. I'm sure helicopter mom will figure things out eventually.....
          Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

                      What he was alluding to is this: your son is 21. Mom shouldn't be involved in his life to the point of trying to get him hired. If he can't figure out what the issue is, he has NO business being a cop, or in any responsible position. He needs to run his life, not rely on, or have a parent, do it for him.

                      Your hovering is just creating another problem for society.

                      Let him go.
                      Now go home and get your shine box!

                          Train for tomorrow, for you never know what it will bring to the fight.
                          In the school of Policing, there is no graduation day.

                          Arguing on the internet, is like wrestling with a pig in mud. After a while you realize that while you are getting dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.
                          Do Not Disturb sign should read, Already Disturbed Proceed With Caution.
                          Even if the voices aren't real, They have some really good ideas.

                            Parents need to learn when to step away. You are not a coach. You do no favors running his life, no matter how you phrase it. You are part of the problem. He's already three years behind the rest of the world.
                            Now go home and get your shine box!

                              this, at twenty one he is an adult and should not need mom running or steering his life. God help him if he gets on the job, you are not going to be able to sit next to him on shift giving out life advice.
