    Hi, I'm in my first year of alevels and wanting to drop a subject now (I'd still be doing four). My parents disagree with me, and my dad has said that he'll pull me out of sixth form if I ask school to let me. Is this actually something that he could do?

    By law you are required to stay in education until you are 18. Your parents could face prosecution should you fail to attend. I do know of people who drop out and don't get pursued though. I suppose it's just a lottery.

    Ew @ your dad. What's his problem? Idk. Because if he did try it you'd have to either accept it or fight it, if you fight it and he doesn't give up you can bet social services or something will get involved. They love a good family argument, it keeps them in business. So just try and think how he'll react, id imagine he would come around eventually
Do you think parents should charge rent?
