I had a friend that had the same problem. Great solution. It worked very well. She and her husband became this child's best friend. Walked them to school, (walked him to his locker even), picked him up from school, no friends, no tv, no computer, no video games, no phone, no ipod. If the child was done with school before work was done, the child had to come sit in his father's office until work was done and did his homework. The boy had to work to get each of his privileges back. The last of which was the picking up and dropping off. He needs to know you are the parent. Depends on you as to how much control you need to take back. If there was a relapse, it went back to square one. The parent even talked to the teachers to let them know of the process and got daily reports as to how the child was doing. Let us know how it turns out! Good luck!
