After living all his life in one town 30 minutes from his grandparents farm 14-year-old is having a difficult time moving to a new state and going to a new school. After attending school for about a month 14-year-old refuses to go to school. We are living in an apartment with most of our furniture back in our old house. Son refused to go to counseling. He jumped out of the car when we were on our way. Eventually he did go to counseling. We gave him the choice of moving back and living with his grandparents. He decided to do that but he would have to go to new school anyway and eventually he stopped going to that school also. Now were at a point where we don't know what to do. We are going to go down and pick him up and bring him back to live with us. But should we put him in a new school or should we homeschool him or something else along with counseling? This is a child who used to love to go to school. He was a good student. Smart.
