Shaz, as a family you've obviously had more than your fair share of stresses, traumas, and sadness in recent times. It sounds like your son's reactions fit within the rather wide range of normal teenage behaviour. WOuld he be eceptive to the idea of joining YOU in counselling, so that You can be better helped ? In other words, to see his participation as helping you, rather than as admitting that he himself has problems ?
Is there some way the school could help him meet with a counsellor to talk about his study problems, and perhaps be sensitive enough to check on whether he is more troubled than that ?
