What would you say to a teenager that says "I hate school; it's not for me. I think I'll quit"?

I would introduce them to my cousin Bobby. He quit school to get a job. He now holds down two full time jobs and one part time. They are all just barely over minimum wage, and he is constantly tired and worried about money. He feels okay about telling any child who will listen how important it is to stay in school, so by the time my kids are old enough, the will probably have already heard from him.

I'd say: "Don't be a fool. It takes effort now, but later you will benefit from it. You reap what you sow."

You can start a new revolution in your school. Maybe every teacher feel terrible and make every classmate feel happy! If you hate school, try to do something other than hidding and excaping.
