My Son Is Trying To Better Himself

The other day my wife woke me up in the middle of the day when I was sleeping after working most of Christmas Day and part of the evening and said my son needs to look for a job and to file a police report because his ex-girlfriend had been making harassing phone calls. Well I was groggy and my son was sick at his stomach, he said he hadn't been feeling too well lately. He's still trying to get disability and medical benefits.
He's trying to form a band with a friend he met in the hospital. I hope they succeed. She was pretty tough on him, he needs it sometimes for he is not too motivated. He is a definite work in progress, we must be patient with him. My wife doesn't have as much patience as I do with him. As I have aged maturity brings patience and understanding. Sometimes the hardline approach works, in this case maybe or maybe not. My wife doesn't understand my son and what he's been through sometimes in the last two years. I suppose I need to talk to him or get him some counseling, maybe we three could use it. Maybe I should read the riot act to her or have someone else do it. She just doesn't get it and may never. Sometimes I don't either. We'll see. -30-
