Disrespectful & self absorbed son

Problems w/ soon-to-be 18 yr old son...disrespectful & self-centered, poor grades, never likes his boss (probably because he is not a great worker & they say something to him). He has ADD...is it too late to help him? We have (3) other children & they r not like this? He is the oldest so he has definitely changed our family dynamic & not for the good...

First, did you ever have him evaluated and diagnosed as having ADD? If so was he on medication for it and now refuses to use it? Or has he not been dianosed with such and is not on meds to help him? Has he been to a therapy or a counselor? Because if he has not been treated for this or seen a counselor, that will make life hell for you and the family. He needs some sort of treatment to help him out. If you sit back and do nothing, then it will get worse over time. You asked if it was too late to help him? If you have done nothing to this point with him and got help from school and the medical professionals, then it might be.
