My 17 year old son told me I would have to fight him for his phone

"Ok how would you handle your 17 boy if he absolutely refused to give you his phone? He told me I would have to fight him for it! WT*#%! I’ve never had to deal with this much aggression from him before! He has lost his *^% mind. I’m trying to stay calm

My reason for taking it away is that he doesn’t want to take a drug test particularly because he has to pay for it. This was already discussed with him along with the consequences. The drug test is for weed- obviously it’s not a horrible drug but it’s the circumstances of the situation where he has repeatedly lied and now dealing with the repercussions of failing a drug test through school and that we have been dealing with for the last 4 months. We have obviously failed with figuring out how to deal with this."

Call the carrier and have his line disconnected. Change your WiFi password. That should motivate him to listen to you. The phone is a privilege and not a right.
