HELP! We have an exchange student from Thailand and we don’t know what to do with him. We didn’t expect to get him, he arrived in the U.S. with no host family and we made a last minute decision to help out.
What is the day of the average 17 yr old boy like in Thailand?
He is very nice and polite but he spends all his time in his room talking to his Thai friends online. We’re supposed to try to limit his computer time but we haven’t addressed this yet. How can we broach this subject to him? He seems to be getting ideas of expensive things to buy here from his friends back home. Fortunately we don’t live near any stores.
We live in a very small town and he seems completely bored with the types of things we’ve done so far. The minute he gets a chance he disappears back in his room. We have a boy one year younger and they get along OK but don’t do much together. His application said he wanted to be on the east or west coast and he ended up in the middle.
The other day he asked my husband if he could ride a motorbike to school. We have no idea what he was thinking. I already said I wouldn’t let him ride one since his mother won’t. Is he already trying to pull one over on his fake mom with his fake dad? What does he mean by motorbike? We have two fairly large motorcycles. Did he think we would let him rid a motorcycle to school?
