When we step in, we get lectured about how we need to let him fend for himself. When we step back, we get lectured about how we're not stepping in.
I'm not even talking serious issues here ... he's been trying to get a form signed and keeps getting the runaround. Trust me, he's more than capable of having that done. He complained to his counselor (he needs the department chair signature) after being blown off 3 times in less than a week by this guy; counselor calls me to tell me to step up. What she didn't know is that I already placed a phone call to the head chair after DS wasn't getting anywhere. When counselor got word of that, then she felt she had to lecture me on interfering and how I should let DS fend for himself. Regardless, the damn thing is still not signed; we keep getting the runaround! Thank goodness he's graduating and will be out of there shortly!
What a bunch of bozos!

make an appointment for you and your son to talk to the principal, tell him/her everything you just said there!!! The kid is a minor and you most certainly should be involved if the CHILD feels they need your help. (Oh, and I work in a High School)
