I have a hard time everyday to get my 13 year old son up to get him to school. He is bigger than me so physically forcing him is not something I can do. My husband and I have recently separated and my son and I had to move in with my dad. Now I have to take to his friends house to catch the bus every morning but it is a struggle and half the time he refuses to go at all. I have done the taking away his games and phone but it doesn't seem to help. There is only one extra room at my dad's house so most of the time my son just hides out in there. There is not a lot for him to do. I work 2 nights during the week and then work all day on the weekends. My son's dad has a lot of health problems so he isn't much help for me. I just don't know what I can do for him. The school doesn't respond to phone calls very well. That is one thing that my son's dad has helped with, is to call the school.
