My 20 year old is still in HS . He keeps refusing to get up and go most mornings. Sometimes he will go in late. I have tried almost everything, taking vehicle away, constantly bugging him and fussing until he gets up. He goes back to sleep when I leave the room. I have tried talking to him. I even grounded him a few times. He is not disrespectful , just lazy. I'm very frustrated. What else can I do ? He is just screwing up his future.

First off he's 20. If he won't do what he needs to do time to kick him out. Give him2 months to show that he is either going to school getting good grades or a job. Then you can do one of two things. I have friends who have done this. Drop him off at a homeless shelter or drop him off at recruiting center. Both boys who had this done to them turned their life around. What it comes down to is he no longer a baby he's a man. Time to man up.
