The lack of common sense is strong with this one
Again, my SS is almost 16, on the better functioning end of the spectrum with some flavor of ADHD.
In the past weeks it had been a crazy struggle with this kid. On the one hand I understand that at his age, he wants to be independent and start finding his place. On the other hand, he ONLY wants to be independent in expressing his opinion (not a bad thing) and expecting people to do things his way (not that much a good thing), and not anything else. (Doesn't know when he needs to eat, clean, what kind of clothes to wear, keep losing everything...etc)
This week we learned that he doesnt' know how Lobster differs from Crab (also didn't know how many legs a crab has)...he also thought that the ID/driver's license will just be issued once he hits the age. The other day he asked his father where he can get a resume.
But regardless, this is the boy who thinks he's "Teaching me" whenever we talk.
I want this kid to be independent, but being treated rudely 9 of 10 times (the one time he is nice is because he is asking for things) when I am only trying to help is just not an rewarding experience. I've stopped helping him that much with his hw, and DH is being driven nuts by his son.
Just needed to vent.
