Parents are troubled by children who are out of control and have problem behaviors such as running away, truancy, school failings or suspensions, and delinquency.
They engage in a variety of antisocial and destructive acts, including violence towards people and animals, destruction of property, lying, stealing, truancy, and running away from home.
Second, schools must have firm policies on the consequences for truancy, and all students should be aware of the sanctions that will be imposed if they are absent without an excuse.
Operating your homeschool according to the regulations in place is very important, as in most states, charges of truancy and educational neglect can be brought against parents who do not file the proper paperwork.
Finally, a close link between the school, law enforcement, juvenile court, family court officials, and social service agencies may lead to solutions for truancy.
