I recently left my well paid, very satisfying job- packed up the 16 yr old and 14 yr old and headed to the other end of Australia (4,500kms away). Why? one may ask, well… my dear darling 16 year old son obtained an apprenticeship and was desperate to do it..so here we are.
My problem is that the child I transposrted here 3 mths ago was polite, respectful and gentle. After obtaining his licence (uses my 4WD), obtined a girlfrien (the 2nd in 3 mths) and having money he has become selfish, self centered, disrespectful. He is never home and when he is I barely get a grunt from him. He wont do anything around the house-“too tired” and treats his sister with such distain.
What do I do?? not such. Have no male influences (grandfather/uncles- all left back home) and I feel like I am losinghim rather rapidly. Any advise would be amazing
