At least schedule a time for him to eat some gruel

Mother: (on cell) "He has soccer practice at 8:00, volleyball at noon, and piano at 3:00. Then he has to finish his homework. (pause) No. We can't do Sunday either. He has to go to church in the morning, do his chores after church, and then study for his tests. At night we have family reading time and he's got to finish his book. He's well behind and we can't discuss it if he doesn't catch up. (pause) If I don't fill his weekend, what else is he going to do? Relax? That's not going to work in my family."

Christ, if that was my mom, I'd be driven to pull a Menendez on her.
