Hi Dad,

Does he know your at the wiks end? What I mean does he know he’s frustrating you. Or are you calmly correcting him as you go. I wish I would of had a dad that could of done something other than telling me how much i’m screwing up.

The fact you put him through diving school is a plus, if you play your cards right you will be able to use this to entice his learning. Coming from you won’t work probably but if you give a heads up to the instructor on your challenges he/she can make it seem like getting an education is very important to someone that wants to get into marine life.

The frustrating part for him will be if math is necessary he’s got a lot of catching up to do. His best realization of consequences to his actions (his cognitive know-how) only works if they have an interest in what and why.

Is he on meds? What kind of counseling?

There’s alot you can still do,he’s at home under your thumb.
