My teenager has previously been in trouble with school due to messing with his friends and doing daft things. He was reprimanded and paid his price with detentions and punishments, grounding, at home. But he has made a name for himself now and is being targeted by a number of teachers who are now blaming him for things he has not done even when he has had friends going to them to stick up for him to varify that he was not involved. What should I do as he is being picked on now nearly every day? I believe punishments should be fair and if he has done something then yes, he should be punished but I feel its now getting out of hand. He swears that he has been trying really hard not to be daft or do stupid things, but is now feeling it doesn´t matter anyway because he´s going to get picked on and thus punished regardless. Does anyone have any advice????
