What do you do if teen won't go to school?
She has successfully pissed both her BD and I off so much that we are finally removing her "privileges". The problem with giving her any type of punishment is that she will refuse to go to school or will run away. I know to call the police if she runs away and I know that the Parents are responsible for her actions, so what happens when BD goes to work at 6:30 and it's left to me to make her go to school. She is as big as I am and stronger so I can't physically force her to do anything. I don't want to be fined by the magistrate and I don't want that to escalate to her skipping repeatedly and having DH arrested for HER truancy and bad behavior.
What do I do? Do I call the police to have them escort her to school? Then call them again when she doesn't come home?
Is there a way that we can give her back to BM who deserves this headache since she created 85% of it before summer?
