My son is 15. He's my oldest, so I've never had to deal with a teenager before. For some reason, he has decided that he's allowed to decide whether or not he goes to school. Today is a half day and he told me he's not going. So I told him that yes, he is. He's already missed eight days just because he doesn't want to go. No academic issues, no major social issues. Just "my friends aren't going, so I'm not going, and you can't do anything about it." So when he realized that I wasn't going to give in, he started telling me that I'm evil, psychotic, a witch, the whole thing. Why does he think he's perfectly allowed to be in full control of everything? If he had his way, we'd be in truancy court. I'm completely exhausted.
