Therapeutic Wilderness Program
I posted a while back and recently gave an update on my teenage son's school situation the past year. He has been unable to cope in the environment the school has placed him. Every day he purposely acts out to get suspended from school. Yesterday, he started saying the N word, than pretended like he was ejaculating on the rug with hand sanitizer. The school now wants to place him in a Guardian Angel home for 10 days. I am not sure if that is the right placement, and he is refusing to go.
His psych doctor is recommending either a boarding school or a wilderness program to help him get back on track. The wilderness program is very expensive and I am not sure that is exactly what will help him overcome his depression and anger about not being able to attend high school with his peers from middle school.
Many suggested I home school him. Since, I work out of the home it would be hard to do. He would need to spend at least 5 hours a day on school work, and I don't think he would be able to motivate himself to do it.
Any feed back on wilderness programs or home schooling would be greatly appreciated.
