If your teen wants to drop out then make some drastic changes.
Let them experience when life gets tough.
What do you do when your teenager wants to drop out of school? Unless there is a valid reason for this otherwise insane proposition, it is time for tough love. Home life must drastically change and become devoid of all of the creature comforts. Without t.v. central air, a car, video games, and a stocked refrigerator the pleasures of life become greatly diminished.
Hiding your car keys and locking your refrigerator along with all digital devices would be a good start. Demand he get a job and pay rent to live at home and if he doesn’t, depending on your state law, change your locks. This sounds harsh to those in our short-sighted and pampered world, but it’s not as harsh as a lifetime of food stamps and state dependency.
