What the Expert Says:

You'll probably want to find out why exactly he's skipping school.  Is it purely because he's not interested and can't focus?  If so, maybe rule out ADHD.  Is it because he's going off and hanging out with friends?  Does he suffer from some kind of anxiety?  Try to find the reason, because it might help you find the solution.

Also, speak to the school about this.  Explain that you're a single parent and you're having a hard time making sure he gets to class.  They may be able to give you ideas or talk to him.

Feel free to call us, and we can discuss this further!

Good luck!
