Our son has been staying home from school a lot this year, and it’s only the beginning of the school year! He has trouble getting up in the morning. He says that it’s not technology that’s keeping him awake, but I beg to differ. I’ve tried taking away his iPod but he just grabbed it back again and said that that’s not what’s been keeping him up. He watches TV until late at night. We’ve tried grounding him and that doesn’t work. I don’t know what to do with him anymore. He’s starting to turn out like his sister only worse. She dropped out of school in Grade 9. He’s only in Grade 8.
We don’t want to get in trouble from the school for not sending him. We’ve even tried (not this year) sending him with his Grandma a little bit late. Better late than never, right? We figured he’s not staying home all day. He can still get there just a little bit late. We haven’t done that this year. We can’t even get him out of bed. Teenagers!
Just needed to let this out. Thanks again for listening. Till next time,
