    My daughter is in 11th grade. She is a solid A/B student and is throwing it all away!!!She is diagnosed with Bipolar; but I do not allow this to be an excuse. She is being treated and closely monitored. I see this as pure defiance. I have asked the school social worker to come out to the house; maybe she can get through to my daughter. We have done everything to try and keep her life from imploding. My husband and I are burnt out and are officially passing on the torch to our daughter. You know you have a problem when the parents want the children to succeed more than the child. Any thoughts or suggestions?????

    School refusal/anxiety programs are being offered at many phosps. I would google your nearest big city and "school anxiety php".
