How can I help my brother who refuses to go to school or do homework go to school?
My 8th grade brother has been refusing to go to school or do his homework and instead opting for video games. All of his grades are Fs, and I'm worried about him. My mom has had to call the police three times to make him go, and twice they had to come to our house. Almost every day, my mom is late to work, and her boss is very frustrated with her. She has taken away his video games, computer, and iPad privileges countless times, yet he decides to steal his computer/TV monitors back every time. I'm worried because occasionally my brother gets violent and hits my mom - it's not hard; it's fairly weak slapping. My mom can't be continually late, because she CAN NOT lose this job. I need to figure out a way to help my brother go to school and do his homework. Please help.
