Yikes! Our 14 year old hates summer camp
Last year, our son attended a month long sleep away camp. This year, he asked that we send him there again and do we did. Within 3 days, he was pleading to come home. Then, he was angry and abusive over the phone when we refused. This camp is very expensive, he asked to attend and there was no possible refund, plus we don't want a restless teen on our hands for a month (we both work.) We've spoken to his counselors and the issue appears to be one of social integration...he tends to take offense easily and doesn't seem to get the teen insult culture. Our concern is his return in 2 weeks...are we in for hell? How do we handle this?
Also, any recommendations for other discussion boards on teen issues. We simply don't know how to react to this stranger who kidnapped our son.
