I am not a parent of a teen, but an older sister. My sister is 14, and I am 28. My mom is in the hospital, and has been for 2.5 months. She will probably be there a few more months at least. Here is my problem.
My sister has been a problem for the past year or more, wont listen to my mom and does what ever she wants. Well when she is here I wont put up with it. She has consequences.
Anyways, she is failing most of her classes and has lots of absences. She is ditching classes during the day. Ive tried talking with her, rewarding her, having consequences etc.
Well today I get called at work, and she has got a citation for truancy. She has to appear in court! I am so mad. I take her and pick her up so I know she is there on time. Here is the thing, legally I cannot take her to court because I am not her legal guardian. I also cannot call the school and get information on her grades and absences.
