I'm new here, and I need to vent. My son is 18 years old, and thinks he knows everything. He just graduated highschool from a very prestigious college prep private school. But, actually he doesn't get his diploma b/c he failed a math class. And, until he passes this class he won't get his diploma, therefore, stalling his plans for college. Do you think he'd be rushing to get this done? No. he's going to the beach, hanging out with friends, and driving his girlfriend all over the place (he has his own car). When I bring it up he only gets angry with me, and says I'm pushing him. He currently has a part time job as a janitor at the movie theaters, and thinks that b/c he can now pay for his own stuff then thats fine. What he doesn't realise is that he can't stay in that job for ever. So, I said the hell with it he's going to find out the hard way when all his friends and girlfriend goes off to college at the end of summer and he will be left behind. I feel so frustrated and angry.
