9. i am thinking that giving a deadline of some sort may be motivating
seemed like that was the only thing that got him through high school, concrete deadlines

perhaps a contract of some sort, a family contract of how we should ALL relate to one another under the same roof, respect for others belongings, etc (use it to be a lesson to the little ones too)

but an additional piece of paper to give him an outline of what goals i think he should meet and when...

or else he can go live with his grandparents .... D'oh!
