    No but everyone leaves school early etc I don't know high school that well but year 7 is high school it's very different

    I love Steve Biddulph, I got his book Raising Boys when I had DS1 and it gave me so much confidence that I was on the right track.

    Raising Boys saved me as a single mum of DS1. I revisit still with DS2. He is brilliant!
