My son is 16 with a history of ADHD. He went to Counseling and took meds for 10 years. The counseling place closed and he didn't like the way the meds made him feel anymore because he wasn't eating. We agreed to let him go off of them. Anyway, he is a good kid as far as he has never been in any trouble with the law, doesn't drink or smoke or do drugs, does his chores etc. The problem? He won't go to school half the time. If he is genuinely sick, I will call the school and say so. However, if he just wont get up, I refuse to lie on his behalf so I dont call. He doesn't drive, doesn't have a job yet and basically has nothing that he can get grounded from except the computer which we have already done. He has an appt coming up with the doctor and a new counselor. HOWEVER, the school called me yesterday and informed me that they are going to send us to court because he has missed 41 school days this year. I am worried because Ohio has a law that says the parent is responsible. We have tried everything to get him up: pulling him out of bed, sprinkling water on his face, etc. I can't physically drag him dead weight to the car-neither can my husband. One day I got him to school and he refused to get out of the car because he was "tired". The school says we will have to go to an arraignment at the detention center and he will have a second chance but he won't be able to get his drivers license and they will keep any eye on him next year. On top of that, he is failing this school year. I am at my wit's end. Anyone go through this process??
