my 13- year old does not get up in the a.m. until I threaten taking away privileges. I drive him to school on my way to work, he is always a few minutes late, and so am I.....It is so frustrating. He spends too much time in the shower once he does get up too. I'm at my wits end....we've tried having him going to bed earlier (9:30), and it doesnt make any difference....HELP
Does the school do anything about his late arrivals? Mine get instant detention, if there not doing anything about it ask them to and let him make his own way home afterwads. I wouldn't drive him in anymore either. If he wants a lift he needs to be ready on time, otherwise let him get there under his own steam.
