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.

how can you feel so alone when you have people around you who care about you. Literally just been having anxiety all day.. I’ve tried my meditation, hanging out with my friends, family. I feel so broken.. I don’t know how to be ok.
My anxiety is becoming worse the older I become. Driving is a trigger and I have stayed close to my area. My teenage daughter bought concert tickets for mother's day which is 2 hours away. I looked up buses and trains and we can take a bus.......but even taking a bus/train brings up anxiety (fear of getting lost, taking the wrong one). I was thinking of an uber but that will be too expensive and...
