Is it unrealistic to expect my teenage son to accomplish something on a weekend? All he wants to do is watch TV and play on his phone when he is failing three of his grade 11 courses. He refuses to take his meds as he has had horrible side effects and we are on a three month waiting list for a psychiatric assessment. I’ve learned to lower my expectations of him so I’m not constantly disappointed but all he talks about are how is ADHD and OCD and oppositional defiant behaviour would be so much better if I let him take weed (now that’s it’s legal in Canada, he and many of his friends, feel they have a right to use it to help anxiety and OCD). He feels if adults can use it why can’t teens, even though I’ve explained the bad effects on the developing teenage brain. I’m getting nowhere and worried he’s going to use it at school where I can’t stop him. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
