My 16 year old son dropped out of school and there is nothing I can do about it...UPDATE
He is 16. I just got a letter informing me that my son just unenrolled himself from school. He was a junior but unenrolled 2 weeks before finals so he did not get credit for that year.
I am so angry and disappointed. I asked him where the hell he had been going when he was supposed to be going to "school" but he didnt answer because he was on his xbox.
I took his xbox, unplugged the tv, and told him to go to his room until his dad comes home. I dont even know what to do. I cant kick him out or force him to get a job(eta by this i mean I cant make him have a good interview and actually get a job. Even if I set up an interview for him he would still have to do good and he doesnt want a job) . I didnt even know he could take himself out of school.
ETA: I am thinking I am going to give him three options: Go to school, get a job and pay rent, or go on complete lockdown until he is 19 and I can kick him out
ETA he cant get a GED until he is 19
UPDATE: So far we have gone with lockdown. We removed everything from his room except his bed and a few changes of clothes.
