Need help with my 16 yr old. Runaway/Texas
I have a question. My son is 16, he's was placed in a school for 6 weeks(one that you cant just walk out of class). He was placed their mainly because My wife and i pushed the issue. He was always tardy, skipping school, no fighting or drugs(as far as I can tell). He's basically the A-typical example of a slacker. When he does go to class, he dont make a ruckus, he just sits and does nothing. He has ran away 4 times, stolen wifes car, ran from me when i caught him in the house with his friends... but always comes home "when his head clears", last night he bailed again.
I have gone thru local programs before i.e. boot camp tour, counseling, psychotherapist, etc. They tell me that the only way i can get my son into the boot camp is thru a Judges order. The boy is just beyond intelligent, he seems to do just enough to keep from getting in any real trouble.
My question is this>can i make an appointment to talk to a judge who may be able to help me out? If tried the truency rout, but the school systems here in El Paso are HORRIBLE. its a constant and uphill battle with the schools....hell, when my son goes to class, they cant even tell me if he's at school.
My wife just called, he's at school right now....
