Teen grandson 14, parents separated when a baby. Mother just separated from 3rd partner. Dad married with 4 year old son. Marriage is shaky but mostly because of 14 year olds behaviour. Fifty/fifty care, one week with mum, one with dad. Grandson hates stepmother and recently trashed her belongings. Gets on reasonable well with dad but won’t talk to him about anything , standard answer I’m ok. Nothings wrong. He has numerous days off school all of them when with mum, never sick at dads. School work shocking. He’s very quiet all the time and does tear up when asked about how he’s feeling. How can I help him? I don’t know where to start.
