Nutrition advice for walking

I would find out he has an interest in and run with it. Encourage him not to insult him or make fun of him (I'm sure you do not).

Just flat out tell him that this is in your budget and your run it a certain way. And can he do what he wants when he is at his mother but when he at home, he must be kept by your rules. And hopefully by the end of the summer he will have a better lifestyle.
