Explain good

This is a card that I made for my 16 year old son.  He can be a sweet boy...the few hours that he sleeps.  Otherwise, he can be a stubborn teen-ager that fights for his independence.  On Monday, we had a struggle with trying to explain responsibility and it was a no-win situation.  He is taking several advanced placement courses as well as a class at the University of WI- Madison.  So...he has a lot of homework which he is struggling to keep up with.  On Monday, he didn't have class at the high school, but my husband and I could not convince him that he needed to attend the UW.  He refused to drive to the campus.  I told him to get in the car, and I would take him and we were arguing to which my husband so to let it go and have him suffer the consequences.  ARGH!!!  Now you can understand why his Christmas card involves getting coal.
