Hi Everyone! I have a son who is in grade 9 and has been skipping classes. I have asked him why and im hearing because i didnt feel like going and the most recent was cause i went far away from school for lunch and didnt get back in time! I worry that this will become a habit and i worry that he will not get the credit for his classes and put him behind which i know would be the consenquences for his actions. I know exactly what classes he skips because the school calls at dinner time if a class has been missed. Anybody have any ideas as to what I can do when he does skip classes?

Let him know that the next time he skips a class you will take a week off from whatever you normally do while he's in school and follow him to each and every one of his classes... in front of his friends... ALL week long.
