My fifteen year old son is acting like the normal selfish teen so many parents tell me about but I can't help the resentful feelings that come up. I want to be more conscious and reach him in a positive way since holding it against him will bring nothing positive. He doesn't try his hardest with schoolwork and following through on most important things but when it comes to being with his friends (which are also mostly unmotivated) he goes out of his way. He is starting a new school in September which I think may help since most of the kids are into getting their work done. I just see ourselves becoming so separate and it scares me. I know teenage years are tough but I also don't want him to not be able to take care of himself once he is on his own. Maybe my job adds a lot of stress since I work with people that have a hard time adjusting to life/to caring and suppporting themselves. Any advice will be helpful.
