I'm running out of options!! My 17 yr old son will be 18 in 2 months and is failing school, not doing homework, sneaking out and smarting off at teachers. I have taken everything from him (phone, car, made him quit his job and cant go anywhere) I received a call today that he has detention for smarting off at another Teacher. I really do not know what else to do! I feel like I can't even function at work or anything else, since he is all I worry about! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Take off two weeks from work. When he is out if school. Go on a road trip. Be with ONLY him. Just you two. For two weeks. Have no plan for the road trip, you will have to work together and cooperate to make it through. You will get to know each other. You'll have time to talk. You'll make memories and probably discover a new friendship between the two of you. No guarantees this will work, but worth a try... Let me know:)
