SS lying about his school work
My ss is 13 and has mental disabilities, ADHD and a possibility of an autism spectrum disorder.
He has through the years lied about finishing his homework on several occasions and always been caught in the lie instantly (he has, so far, been a horrible liar), but this weekend was the first time that he actually lied that he had already given the assignment to the teacher for grading 3 times and we believed him!
We were/are paying for a class on nerdy things for him (I'm a huge nerd myself and we totally share that) that starts tomorrow, but I'm so mad at him for lying to me over and over and over again that I'm inclined to not take him to the class. 1st of all, I have to drive there for 45 minutes, wait for him for 2 hours and drive him back, 2ndly because the class is costing us 170$ and I feel like he's let me down in a huge way with this behavior.
He is not following his class in our languages and math and english as a 2nd language (we're not american). He has simplified material in these classes, but I'm wondering if they are still to hard for him.
His father and I have full custody since his mother is a substance abuser and hasn't seen him for over 2 years.
Do you have any insights or advice for me?
