So, I'm not sure I understand, but you are disciplining your child by taking away computers, TV, etc. and he won't go to school unless you give those things back? In any event, the child should not be in any position to argue the point. School is mandatory, there is no choice in the matter, and if he refuses to go to school, then I'd call the truancy officer. I knew of a principal that came to a child's house and drug her out of bed (with Mom's permission, of course) and made her go to school in her pajamas. You need to let your child know that you are the one in control. Take away privileges and stick to it.

it is up to you to get him in school. kids dont get to just not go to school. the law is there for a reason. you could go to jail.

I'm confused. Your child won't go to school? Since when is it his/her choice?
