We have tried different approaches: heart to heart talks, tough love, bribes, threats, incentives but nothing works. He is so behind in his school work that he might not graduate. All he wants to do is tweak his computer and sleep. He's so disrespectful that he's become impossible to live with. He is on medication and attends individual and group therapy. He is a brilliant kid and has thrown a lot of scholarship opportunities away. But when I ask him what he plans to do if he doesn't graduate or go to college, he can't give me a response. Please help.
Update: Thanks for all your great responses.
