Teenagers SUCK

Yes I said it! I swear to God I never was one. LOL

My stepson is soon to be 17.  He does not give a shit about school, a job or getting his drivers license.  I emailed all his teachers because he was saying they would not help him and I wanted to see what was really going on. Well he's failing two classes, two weeks into the semester. He has never asked the teachers for help. He says he does not need help when he is asked. He also spends most his school time working on chainmail he makes.

Well for one the chain mail is gone. It is locked up. Two he is now very aware that we know he's lying out his ass. And Three he probably wont graduate with his class next year. I told him he needs to get his license and a job because he is not going to a freeloader under my roof.

He just does not care. UGH

Has he always been this way with everything?   I was never that type of teenager heck i rejoiced when i got a job part time since it kept me out of the house and actually boosted my self esteem which others trampled on.

My son had a serious case of the seniors his last year. He paid for and passed an online course in three weeks and graduated on time.

Yeah, is there anything that has changed recently like at home or at school? Maybe someone is giving him a hard time there. If he's usually a pretty good student and kid, there has to be an underlying problem you know?

I recommend reading the book "transform your child" by James Leahman. He's the one that runs the program The Total Transformation that you hear all the stupid radio commercials about??
I got this book to try to help with my 9yo sd. It has some good advice. It gives you specific stories about kids and how to handle them. Your story reminds me of one of the stories I read in there about a teenage boy.
Good luck :/ Teens do suck.

 Yeah we did the Total Transformation and it was an epic fail. I got my money back.
