My 14 year old son, DJ refuses to wake up and go to school on a regular basis. We have been to court already and are waiting for DCF to get involved. I'm worried that if he keeps it up that he will have to go live in a group home. I have taken all electronics away and have changed his bedtime. No matter what I do I cant get him to wake up in morning. I am mainly wondering with Christmas days away do I give him his gifts that I have gotten or not????
Thank you in advance for your input.

Have you tried dumping water on him to get him out of bed? What does he do w/ his life? Just sit in his room and stare at the walls all day long?

At this point I think I would hold on to his presents... tell him once he has perfect attendance for 4 weeks you will redo Christmas.
