My son recently turned 17 and is eligible to take his drivers test the end of this month. We have told him since October that he will need a job in order to take that test so he has the means to pay for his insurance and gas, etc.
He has been applying, but the mention of car, driving, job, etc. puts him immediately in the defensive and an argument always in sues. None of his friends have to work or pay their own expenses, and our son doesn't get why "he" has to. There is so much tension I walk on eggshells to keep the peace. What to do?
