Ok ds is 17 Was at 6th form college but has jacked it in. To be fair he hated it from day 1 bad attitude and attendance and never got his EMA etc as he was always late and so on. Tutors all liked him said he was talented etc but was on a road to failing. He left 3 weeks ago and has given out his CV and applied for endless jobs. He has one interview monday in a sports shop so fingers crossed. He is going back to another college in Sept and ultimately wants to go to uni. This no money and nothing to do scenario has really had a good impact He has seen how hard ir is and (his words) how boring. He has zero money now and we don't know whether to start giving him his allowance again What do you think? I was only thinking £10 a week as he does need to keep looking for work .We buy all his clothes etc

I think I will do that. Unfortunately our house is newly renovated and there is little to do but I will find things. Hope he gets the job he has an interview for on Monday

I think Maryz's advice is spot on.

Really, really good luck to him for Monday. Let us know how he gets on.

He's young... There's still time for him yet to become who he's meant to be...

Best wishes to you both.

Thanks He has been a lot 'nicer' in the last few weeks I think he was too immature for college and think he will be more 'ready' this year.

What's he studying Noddy?

Is it definitely the right course for him?...

I'm just wondering if some relevant work experience at this time might confirm to him that he's on the right path/ provide a source of inspiration and motivation/ harness commitment?...

He is on the right course he has wanted to and has been mang films form years. He wants to do editing at Bournemouth uni and so is doing a btec in film and socilogy a level to make up the points. He is lucky that we have friends and family in he industry and they are v helpful to him thanks will post once he has had the interview.
