What the Expert Says:

Dear Nick_jon

Call a few fast food places you frequent.  Ask to speak to the manager and explain the situation.  See if they will have your son visit and speak with an Assistant Manager who can clearly explain to him you do not get rich from that job.  On the other hand if you go to school and take business classes you can possibly own a fast food restaurant and then possibly be rich.

Hope this helps.

Maybe your son is not being challenged enough. He seems too smart for his own good. Most 10 yr olds don't know about GED's. GED's are the last resort in most families. You need to find out what is motivating this behavior, is he being bullied at school?
