His friends at school are out of the county China and India and his few other quality friends that he talks to on line are out of the state. Seems no one in the neighborhood our resident area is very strange old people live here and renters of homes coming and going, a lot of military families.
Please help me figure out a way I can get help. I don't want to yell and scream at him anymore and I just cannot keep him sleeping all the day?
Denise's thoughts: I think you hinted at the answer in your post: he needs a 'thing'. Something to do and look forward to, a reason to get up and out of bed. He may fight the idea of doing something, because he has this habit of sleeping in. But after he does this 'thing' for a little while, he'll be in that habit and happier with it.
The most inexpensive thing I can think of at the moment is volunteering. Rec centers look for teens to help play with the kids who do activities there and hospitals are always looking for teen volunteers(they'll even pay for the TB test he'll need). Another reason hospitals are a good place for teen to volunteer because they can go at all hours.
