I am having a lot of difficulties with my 15 year old son. He attends a privtae school which requires community service hours plus he decided to steal at the school which added another twenty hours this year. I plan out the hours with him and the food pantry where he volunteers. They are only open to 3 on weekdays and one Sat a month which limits his hours. He has half a days this week for midterms I told him to schedule hours this week and he did. I asked him on Friday if he was set to do his volunteer hours this week and he said yes. When I call to see if he got there fine he tells me he didn't know he had to go and gives me this attitude. He says I nag and am always on top of him. He doesn't choose to follow through on things and when I check on him he makes it about me nagging. I am thinking of pulling him out of the private school and letting him go to the public one even though it isn't a good environment. But I know myself and I won't be able to deal with him doing nothing..no effort just getting by. This isn't what he has been taught. I was thinking of giving custody over to his father. His dad wasn't around much till these last three years. I know it is going to impact my son but I wonder if it is better than our relatonship getting worse. I don't know if I could handle him and lately I feel very disconnected from him. I know parents are supposed to love their kids unconditionally but I can't accept his decision to do nothing. One year of it ok but I can't do anymore of it.
