My difficult child has decided he does not need to go to school. He has a very well laid out plan. He simply refuses to work. He won't comply, they send him to the office and then they send him home. Bingo - works for him. He said then, they will send him to the alternative school, and he will do the same thing and get kicked out of there. Then,he just won't have to go to school at all. I tried telling them not to let him come home. Make him stay, even if he just twiddles his thumbs, but then he does somethign to get himself in more trouble, something he knows they will not tolerate, then they will send him home. I am at my wit's end on the school thing. He will sit there and absolutely do no work. He has an IEP. Reduced work load, special cue cards to leave the room if frustrated, etc. He won't take advantage of any of this. He just flat refuses to do anything. Now, they want to "Home bound" him after he got 3 referrals in one day (he's off his medication for now - I told them this, but It didn't matter). I can't make him work either. I honestly just think he is lazy. He is actually very smart. The work is difficult for him, but he can do it. He has all of these opportunities placed in front of him so he can succeed and he just WILL NOT let anyone help him. Do any of you have older children (he's 14) that simply REFUSE to do their work? What do you do. WE can take everythign away from him and he just does not care, as long as he wins the school war. HELP.
