I am going through the same thing with my 17 yr-old son, and our psychologist said, “traumatized,” to describe his school experience is not an over-reaction. It devastated his spirit and motivation. I have taken him out and want to homeschool, and am wondering if you have found a homeschooling program that’s working? Or, did you choose a GED is a better option? I wish I had answers instead of questions for you! I can say I understand completely and am going through the same thing.
