My son doesn't want to spend any time at home, he's rather be at his Grandfather's. I am very aware that he got out of the hospital two or three weeks ago and has to carry an IV around with him wherever he goes. If he has problems with his IV he should get a nurse to take care of it, NOT my 17 year old son. I swear his Grandfather has him wrapped around his little finger. If he calls my son, he expects him to come right over there. He doesn't live far from us, my son still doesn't drive, because he won't keep his grades up. But my whole point is the fact that when he's not in school or in bed, he is ALWAYS over there. I really think his Grandfather has become too dependent on him.
I mentioned this to my son Andrew tonight, and I told him that I was going to start picking him up from school and he had the nerve to tell me, "You're not picking me up from school. If you do, I'll quit first". I was so steamed at him that I asked him if he wanted the cellphone taken away as well. He just walks off and goes in his room and slams the door. I ask him to watch out for his brother in the afternoons just in case I may be running a little late, and he has every excuse in the book for not being there. They both get home within 30 minutes or less from each other. I don't think it's that big of a deal.
I told his daddy that he needed to have a talk with his father about what is going on and the fact that he does have chores that are expected of him here as home as well. So when he called his dad, he sticks up for Andrew no matter what the situation is. His Grandfather said that if he drops out that he will take him to ACC so he can get his GED. That's not the point, the point is that he should be in school and that's where I want him to be. He thinks he's going to be handed everything in life and it just doesn't work that way. I just don't know what to do anymore. All I want is what's best for him, is that too much to ask? I don't want him to throw his life away. Not to mention his little brother wants to spend some time with him, how can he when he's never there? I'm at a loss, I just don't know what to do anymore.
