I have a 15 yo turning 16 yo in 2024.
We are currently in Hong Kong but planning on moving back to Australia to help my son find something he might be interested in doing instead of the normal academic schools. He is not interested in the normal school academics. He is however interested in Computers and creating games etc.. He thinks he can make a living from that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
A brief run down on what has been going on since moving to Hong Kong in 2019 December . My family moved from Australia back in 2007 to Singapore for 11 years, My son was born in Singapore but is an Australian. We then moved from Singapore to Manila for 3 years. Again, we moved from Manila to Hong Kong in 2017. All due to my husband's job relocation. My son found it difficult to cope. Then Covid hit, then school refusal, addiction to online gaming, then claims of bullying at school. We withdrew him from an international school here in Hong Kong and enrolled him in the International Tuition Centre which would give him GCSCe qualification but again, he refused school. For now, we took away his laptop, and modem, he has been at home doing nothing since Sep 2023, just constantly on his mobile.
I would like to find out from this Reachout Forum what are his/our options in Victoria Melbourne. We intend to head back in a couple weeks to check out our options but would love to hear from anyone who has similar experiences.
Thanks so much in advance.
