My son isn’t far of leaving school, and as a parent I worry that he doesn’t appreciate how difficult getting into work will be. He’s 17, and typically quite grumpy and refuses to accept help from Mum
most all of the time.
He hides himself away in his room, plugged into his PC and hasn’t a clue how quickly he is going to be thrust into the real world and all that it entails. It’s something I really want to be able support him with without sounding like I’m telling him what to do. It’s really about encouraging him to think about it for himself, but I felt I needed a bit of help myself.
