My 17 son lives with his dad, he moved in with him because I had to many rules. His father lets him homeschool and he is up all night sleeps all day. Now he says he has a sleep disorder. UGH took him to counseling yesterday where the Psychologist tells my son "u like to control things, called me the bad cop and his dad the good cop because I tried to create structure like getting up and going to school. X has now let him drop a class because he did not want to get out of bed, and now might not graduate. I told my x he should drag him out of bed and make him do what he is supposed to do and he said then he will, have a total melt down. I said who cares when is he going to learn "reality" if you continue letting him get his way. Dont know what to do??? UGHAnswer Question

Sounds like you are the only one looking out for the best interest for your son and being a parent. Dad seems like he just wants to be his friend or just doesn't really want to be bothered with it all. Idk what you can do. Just keep on EX to keep on son + you keep on son. Your EX needs to get on board and put up an UNITED FRONT and back you to keep this boy in line and what you and your ex decide, back each other up and make him do what he needs to do. GL.
