my son has just got a letter from one of the big shopping stores to say he has got an 18 hr / wk job for 13 wks from mid-June, starting the day after his last AS level exam
I AM SO RELIEVED
he has never had a job
he is nearly 19
he skipped off when he was sposed to be doing work experience when he was 15 at school
he is in his THIRD first year of A levels (dropped out 2 yrs in a row & hardly went out - I was really worried)
he has had a girlfriend since Feb, so seems much better, but hasn't been able to get a job
some of you may recall my angst last year as he was also suffering from excema / acne - that too has disappeared !!
