Sara writes, “I have a 17-year-old grandson that is turning into an ungrateful young man…
He does not want to spend any time at home with his family; he stays overnight at a different friends’ house (running around with 14-15-year-olds’ and has nothing to do with any of his old friends that are his age). He only comes home every two days. When he is home he stays in his room and refuses to eat with or have any interaction with his family.
His parents bought a car for him and gave him new tires and a stereo system for Christmas. The kids he is friends with now all have wealthy parents which his parents are not – so now my grandson thinks they are not good enough.
Is there anything I can do to help him? I want him to realize that his family loves him and his so-called friends are just using him.”
