Symptoms - past marijauna use, failing grades in school, truancy issues, fakes illnesses, defiant, just off probation for spray painting wall at local mall. Apparently sexually active. Lost interest in all activities except "hangen with friends". Goes through noticable ups and downs. Can go a day or two being a model child, but then flies off the handle when things don't go his way. Lives at home with bio mom, bio dad, two younger brothers. Was just in day treatment center for a week after missing school 6 days out of 10. They suspected drug abuse but drug check was clean. He was fine for a day or two after getting out, now back to "normal", meaning defiant and wild. We saw on facebook today something about him and friend "smoking markers". Anyone with experience with this? Thinking of sending him to a boarding school. Family is stressed and scared. Two younger brothers (10 and 12) both getting A's and in honors classes. Don't want him to "poison" them. Any suggestions on a boarding school in TX or close by? Anyone send a kid to one and have good results (tons of negative stuff about them on net)? Anyone know a good "education consultant" to speak with about schools? Any other advice?
