My BIL and his wife pulled my nephew out of school because of a bunch of crap that was happening. They planned on having me homeschooling him, well they decided they just wanted him to get his GED instead and they have mad him go get a job and start paying 1/3 of all bills  and food. And they are making him pay for his own GED classes. We have tried talking to them telling them its not right of them. Hes 16, but his mom is a money hungry bitch. Thats all she cares about is having more $. Is there anything that can be done about it, or is he just stuck unless he gets emancipated or what?

My husband worked and helped support his family at that age. He did go to regular school...but he worked after school. When I met him 100% of his paychecks were going to his family.

He told me it was part of being in a family. They needed more and he was more then capable to help...so he did.

I don't think it's a bad thing. for centuries when kids reached working age they were expected to help out. 

Today I can say I am PROUD to be from Massachusetts!!

they made him quit his EDUCATION to go get a JOB?  that's a bit ass backwards.

my children's education is a whole hell of a lot more important than having more money in my pocket.  it's not my childs responsibility to pay for the household.  i took that on when i choose to have children.

i'm not really sure if anything can be done, but those parents are complete ding bats.

i save animals.....because they have proven to me they are better than people.

I worked at that age and my check helped pay the bills. What kind of crap was he pulled out for?

When I was 16, half my money went to pay bills, i also had to buy my own food.  I went to school an worked after school.  Thank god I worked at KFC and they let me bring home leftovers so I didnt have to live off ramen.

My now ex was paying 100% of all bills when he was 16. His mom and step dad did not have jobs.

I worked and paid for my own stuff..... shampoo conditioner, food, clothes, etc..... It's not right that they made him quit school though.

damn wtf just for he can help them pay the bills?? when i was 16 i had a job and went to school and work everyday. why can't he just do that? Education is way more important than fucking money. why doesn't the wife get a job?

If he was pulled out of school for things that he did than I completely agree with what they are doing.
