Hello fellow moms! I have a 15 year old son who is so disrespectful towards me. He doesn't do his homework and is failing his classes. I feel so overwhelmed and drained by him. So far he hasn't gotten in trouble with harsh consequences but I see it coming. I have enabled his behavior and I'm struggling on what to do. Help!

You're right, he does it because he gets away with it. You have to be consistent having consequences for breaking the rules. Yes, I know it's draining. And if it's been let go, you're going to get a lot of push-back when you start enacting consequences before it gets better. But if you don't start at some point, then it will keep getting worse and never better.
