Well my 16 soon to be 17 wants to quit High School. I think I am going to let her. Last year she wanted to home school and I didn't let her. She played on the Varsity squad for soccer. They won league. She made a lot of friends and went to Homecoming this year and then tells me she still hates school and wants to quit. She hardly learns anything all day and feels it is a total waste of her time. I used to feel the same way when I went to high school. She is going to have to pass her GED. She already passed the California exit exam, as a Freshman, so I see no trouble in her passing and then she can start Junior College early. I wrote her up a contract that she had to get her 2 and then 4 year degree along with expectations. You don't want to have your kids grow up too soon, but she has always been and "old soul" like me.
