    so, difficult child is likely not returning for spring semester of Freshman year at college. Our options are work, community college, or some combo. We are also considering a gap year/semester.

    Without offering opinions of which way we should go...can anyone please recommend any gap year ideas so we can evaluate options? PMs are fine if its against the rules to solicit program recommendations. many thanks! wish all a peaceful holiday season.

    I don't know what kind of gap options there are. I wish you good luck. We are now at over a year with no sign of difficult child returning to school.

    Work overseas. Or even volunteer overseas. It's a way to "see the world on a shoestring", and learn something about yourself while you are at it.

    Varies. Not sure that would work as a "gap year", though... it's more a career path. Some difficult child kids have done well in the military... others can't even get in the door.
