My Libra Son

female from the abyss of confusion •
He is posing an argument as to why I should allow him to drop out of school... and let him join the military *pulls hair out*

Any input or advice????

To top it off, he thinks his logic and reasoning trumps mine. He is soooo analytical it isn't even funny. The boy is a lawyer in the making, but doesn't want to finish school, nor does he see his strength in this area!!! (he's all about math and physics)

and not downing his math and physics ability, he was running a pool table at age 10 never having played before. He can play chess with the best of 'em and often things in terms of mathematical equations. He can explain Einstein's theory of relativity and in terms the layman can understand with his down to earth examples. If he's trying to explain something to me and I'm not clear, he draws a dang picture to explain the point he's trying to make.

And his creative writing is amazing to beat... all around, he's got it going on!! He got an "A" on a paper he didn't even finish, it was taking a Greek myth regarding Echo and Narcissus and turning it into a story about a prostitute in NY. The teacher was floored by what he did with it.

My son is bored, he's in all honors classes and is bored....

HS

he's arguing the amount of time it will take to finish HS as opposed to if I signed him up for the military (turns 17 next week). He acknowledges that it will be harder work and he will have to be "on" all the time, but considers 3 yrs in the army a better option than the next 3 yrs in HS. His logic is WAY off!!

Part of me wants to just sign him up and be done with it... but, at the same time, I think he's too good for all that crap!

He thinks that given his intelligence (yes, he knows all too well he's smart) coupled with the fact he wants to focus on computer science he'll stay state side. He has spoken w/ recruiters, so they may have told him that (and they lie!). I would rather see him go into the coast guard than the army... he's got a better shot there staying "here".

He's trying to be manipulative... he's basically refusing to go to school, but if I sign him up... Because of his age, truancy laws do not apply. I told him he needs to go to school and we can discuss the other options available to him (such as the alternative/adult HS and classes that can be done online through our State Dept of Ed). I've even argued that he should at least finish out the first marking period so he can get his driver's license as he is in driver's ed - if he doesn't do it there, he'll have to pay to take a course at some point (regardless of age).

If you cannot get the "because I said so" thing to work (it never worked on me when I was a kid), then beat his argument. I know where he is coming from. The way you described him is very similar to how I was. I was getting A's in honors classes while doing drugs and drinking... during school hours. I was so bored in school that friends used to see how much crap we could get away with. If I presented a logical argument to a authority figure and they replied with "I said so", they lost. PERIOD.

The good news, logically you are right. He should finish high school.

What is his actual argument?

He's bored with high school and this is a way and a way to be stimulated. Talk to a recruiter yourself because upon knowing his abilities they may not want him yet. Have him take the asvab its a military vocation assesment and placement test and there is a good chance he will score in such a way that they will only want him for cirtain high proficiency technicalfields that REQUIRE a high school diploma. He might change his perspective if it becomes clear he is selling himself short by enlisting before graduation. Do this on your own though so if it backfires you can keep it to yourself.
