You're gonna ruin my bad reputation

My twelve year old son Ot  is working hard at school. That has not always been his way. In fact, all parent-teacher conversations went along the line: 'He just doesn't seem to care.'

But he has decided he wants to become a Game Designer, and that seems to have lit a fire under him! But when I made him a compliment about working so hard, I saw him blanch.

'I'm not working hard mom!' he said. Because apparently, when you're twelve it's not cool to work hard at school.

It made me think of a country and western song titled: 'You're gonna ruin my bad reputation'.

So I'll keep quiet from now on. After all, I wouldn't want to ruin my son's bad reputation.
