Our son is 27. He left school, against our advice, at 16 and apart from a few odd jobs has not really worked. For a long time he was a heavy cannabis user. He's lived away from home at times, on JSA and housing benefits but came home 18 months ago, on the understanding he either got work or went to college.
He started college last September, and appears to be doing well. He wants to move out but we've said to do that he needs to get a job to fit in with his college so he got a job as a pizza delivery driver. However, he's not happy doing that because he's on the minimum wage, and has to use his own car so says he's not going back. We've told him he can't just not go in to work without some notice or they may not pay him for the work he's done this month, but he says he doesn't care he's not going back.
We just don't understand his attitude. I get so upset by his behaviour, his outlook on life, his lack of enthusiasm for anything except his music, which is his subject at college.
He finished with his long term, girlfriend earlier this year because they always argued. He spends most of his time when not at college, in his room.
I am not necessarily asking for answers, just needed to get some of this off my chest.
Thank you for reading this.
