|I have handled this in the past by listening to my children, giving them a voice in choosing their school, making sure I find every schooling option available, and giving them as much freedom as possible in making their own "daily" choices. If my schedule permits I let them stay home from school, I assist with homework when requested but I leave it up to them whether they do it or not.|

But he keeps insisting that he does want me to make him. :
