Iím thinking the same way. I was beginning to think I was being too hard on the kid.

I know Mom has removed the power cord from his video games. He is home alone while she works, so she did not take his phone due to safety concerns as they donít have a home phone. She is, however, thinking of getting a home phone again so she can take his cell. She started sending him to work with grandpa on the farm every day so that he doesnít have the option to be lazy all day. He does see a therapist.

At this point, I think the ball is in his court. He either does it or faces the consequences. He always gets saved from those at some point, so Iím not sure he fully understands consequences.
