Dropping Out Of High School
What are everyone's thoughts on a stepchild dropping out of high school at 16 years old or so? My idea is that it's okay if there is a GED that's obtained during a summer and/or there's a job being done that can cover some of their bills. Obviously, it's going to cost more to take care of a grown person that is home more often so the only thing that I'll agree to is a situation like that.
Would you agree to it if there were guidelines? I figure if there is a chance that it gets the kid into working and being more responsible, then there's no problem. But if it turns into a long vacation and makes them more lazy, it's basically setting them up for failure.
