my son is going to be 18 in 10 days. he is failing 3 core classes and my fear is he wont graduate. he has also signed up for the navy (delayed enlistment program) and if he doesn't graduate wont be able to go to basic and may get discharged. he wont find a job, had one and was fired in two weeks. wont do homework. wont do chores unless I monitor him every second. argues with his father and I constantly- we've had conversations, screaming matches, reward systems, counseling, psychiatrist, verbal agreements, written agreements, etc.. for the past 5 years. my husband is at the point that he doesnt care anymore and just wants to kick him out. i feel like i should continue this insane journey to try and get him to graduate. my husband feels like im just trying to protect him like i have his whole life and i think i am, but I'm sickened by the thought of kicking him out in 10 days. however I'm loosing my mind, our home life is one big stress ball and our poor daughter (15) has to live with this too. its extremely hard on our marriage as well. any advice?
