I totally understand what you said "when he doesn't want to go that you cannot force him", he's 15, most probably taller than you already! How can you force him?! I have a 15 yrs old boy, I know what you mean. You are doing very good, listen to him, understand him and work on his motive rather than forcing him, which we cannot drag him to school anyway. I think 15 should be able to understand what are the consequence if they quit school now, such as hard chance getting into uni, less education means less chance of professional work, means more labour kind of job plus possible lower income etc. I think a 15 years old should understand all these. Ever think of finding him a part time job at fast food chain or somewhere? Since he has more free time now, would it help if he can have a taste of "labour job"? Hoping to bring him back to the reality. Hope it make sense.
