Question: Manual Transmission wont go into gear

Last week I let me son drive my car and noticed after he drove it that 1st, 3rd and 5th gears were not shifting like they used to. The car would drive fine but it felt like the gears were not going all the way in. Today my battery died so I push started the car. I popped the clutch and the car started but now none of the gears will engage. I can move the shifter into the gears but when I let the clutch out nothing happens.
