Tonight I asked the boys for a valid reason for missing work.

Younger Boy said he doesn't know what valid is.  I explained that it was a good and truthful reason.  Logical reason.

He doesn't have one.  Neither does Middle Boy.  He told me over and over that his motto is "you should be having fun or you should be dead" so if he has to just spend his days going to school and doing homework and doing therapy homework and helping out around the house he may as well commit suicide.  Really?  That seems extreme for having to do the things that 90% of your peers are required to do.

They just don't like homework.  They think it is a waste of time.  That is their reasoning.

I wish I didn't care, but I do.
