Hi I'm a single mom of a 16 years old teen boy. My son is skipping school too often last time he got suspended, and now I have a meeting with the principal to talk about it.
I've talked to my son about it, I have taken his privilegies away but nothing seem to work, I'm desperate I dont know what else to do to make him understand hi can't do that.
If any of you have any advice please let me know I'd really appreciate it!!

Interesting that the consequence to skipping school......is to not be allowed to come to school. Shouldn't the school be having him make up time instead?

Anyway, when you say you've removed privileges, do you mean they are still removed because he has never actually earned them back?

Also, have you talked to him about WHY he is choosing to skip school? At the very least he owes you an explanation. This might give you something to work with.
