My son will be 18 in a month… is a senior in HS …accepted at his first choice college…is skipping school, failing calculus because he does not do the work and just got caught smoking on campus. Everything is a battle ...is it too late to salvage him? Answer quickly -- it's a really bad day. Husband and I are both teachers ...me at the school he attends. His favorite teachers have had it with him as well.
