One week in, DS 15 and I had a discussion last night because he was disrespectful yesterday morning when getting up for school. He is not a morning person. I have to go in 4-5 times to wake him up. I told him that I will no longer do that and he would have to get up by himself. I then brought him an alarm clock and started to set it for him. He yelled I wont use it. I then had a meltdown and threw it to the ground and smashed it. My bad! This morning he said I cant go to school because of last night and I would get in trouble because I am in a bad mood and I will take it out on everyone. He went back to bed. I never raised my voice just smashed the alarm clock. Hmmm. I cant make a 6 foot 170 lb boy go. What to do? Do I excuse him? Thoughts?Answer Question

make him go to bed earlier and take away privileges! It is the law, At least threaten to call the cops and tell the school counselor you are having problems.

he needs a wake up call ASAP. Here we have something called PINS its 'people in need of supervision'. I personally have not had to go that route, but you may want to call your local police station and ask them about it or a program like it.
next ....clean out the kids room of everything except what is needed...clothes bed etc. take all radios, phones TV toys, games out etc make him earn them back
I would also try to find out what the problem is with school. He is at an age where they place great importance on things that to us adults seem trivial. He may need to see a counselor. You need to let him know its your house your the parent he needs to follow your rules
