I am afraid I have passed the depression gene onto my son,found out yesterday that my son has been lying to me for weeks about staying after school for extra help in english and biology, not just "ya i went" but details about what he was doing and how the teachers were telling him he was improving. then I get a call from his english teacher yesterday to offer extra tudoring for Michael, I said " he 's been going for weeks what are you talking about?" well he wasn't, had to call his mother over to the house and have an hour long conference with her and him, I've tried to give him some freedom and told him over and over that his freedom privilages come with the price of doing well in school, long story short (too late) no cell phone, no xbox, no hanging with the friends FULL RESTRICTION until his grades come back up, it was like i was looking at myself when i was 14, he's got the same anger that I have, I LOVE HIM SO MUCH but I can't let him take advantage of my guilty feelings of being drunk for most of his life to let him fail or skate through life, he says he won't go to counseling, should i force him to? i feel if it was me and i was forced at that age it would do no good. I just want him to be happy as an adult does that meen he needs to be controled as a teenager?
