I have written a lot about my oldest son, and how proud I am of him. I am proud of all of my children, but he is a teenager now and he amazes me almost daily. He brought home his report card a few weeks ago and had two F’s. We did what parents do and grounded him, limited his phone and computer use, and increased his chores. We’ve stayed on top of him to do his assignments and have been very supportive of him in bringing his grades up.
He still has an F and a D in two classes. I’m so frustrated!
When I began asking him about these classes in an attempt to reach out to him, he lashed out at me and got extremely angry. This behavior is becoming more and more frequent lately, and I am wondering if he is starting to show signs of bipolar, like me.
