He believes that he is doing what is best. There is usually nothing to videotape. Just hurtful, negative words. Things like if you don't _______then you will never have/do/be _________.
You can't handle college and if you flunk out, we won't support you.
Last night Billy begged me to help him figure out how to get things done without getting paralyzed with inaction. He has the "mountain-mole hill" syndrome. Everything looks too hard, so he does nothing. He is currently failing 2 classes. We are going to sit down with his planner(again) and try to make some daily plans which will get him through the rest of his senior year.
He will go to community college or a state school, but even so, he will still get a quality education. I truly believe that he will do well and I for one plan to support him no matter what.
