Parasitic drain. YouTube it and you will find your circuit. Fixing the circuit can be fun but at least you are closer. Aftermarket radio? This is the most common issue.
In some cases it is a faulty diode in the alternator. Do the test and see what you find.
how do I youtube iam not sure how to? we have a manual my husband bought any help there?
Get on a browser on your phone or computer and type YouTube. Go to the YouTube site. Once on site you type "parasitic drain". Watch a video or two and all you need is a voltmeter. There are a few different ways to do the test but you watch a few videos and see which one you like. The battery in your car has to be charged to start this.
Do you have any family or friends that could do this for you? Tell them you have a parasitic drain going on in your car and you need it tested to find the affected circuit.

Was you able to locate the circuit and fix it?
Did your son help his dad fix this?
Is your car fixed? What was it?
