Hi all, new to dadsnet and needing some help if possible.
I am a step dad to a 14yo girl who is refusing to go to school or always late even when her mum and I are in trying to get her up. We have had meetings with the school, doctors etc but still nothing seems to work. On several occasions she will leave for school but end up not going and then go into town to meet people without saying to anyone. Obviously worrying for her safety as well. I have only been in her life for the last 4 years so I know to a point this will be an issue.
Does any other step dad have any advice or places to go to help? To say i am and we are struggling just now is an understatement. Any suggestions welcome.
