Your son may need more than what the school counselor can offer. The school counselor can help with academics and help get your son placed in an alternative academic setting but cannot help with the issues you are facing at home. Check into mental health in your area. They may suggest individual counseling for your son as well as family counseling. Many facilities will work with you on a sliding fee basis. It's good that you are looking for answers before your son becomes a teen. In most cases the state will not become involed unless there is abuse. The state will probably also suggest counseling. Being the mother of a troubled teen is heart wrenching . Stay strong.
