Yes homework from school can cause depression.

I was always depressed when I came home from school and had homework to do as I felt like a prisoner being forced to sit down in my room and do my homework.

My mom never let me go outside or watch TV etc until I had my homework done.

I hated homework and so does a lot of people.

Even school itself can cause depression just like going to a job you hate but have to work the job to pay the bills and eat.

I used to get really depressed going to my office job and dreaded everyday when I had to go.

Now I work from home and can work whenever I want to because I make money blogging and make more money blogging per month then I have made in a few months of my office job.

School can cause stress in some people who go to school.

For most people school is a hated place to be and is really stressful and some people have a really hard time learning.

I always found school to be stressful and even my 8 year old son who is in school finds school to cause him stress and I can tell that my 8 year old son is stressed out when he gets home from school.

There's been times that he has faked being sick with the flu or stomach ache because he did not want to go to school.

I've done that myself so I really understand what he's going through however students must attend school because you can into trouble with the law and that is not worth it.

I'm hoping to home school him next year because he really does hate going to school.

I work from home so it's not a big deal.

Truancy is usually defined as being absent from school with no good excuse for 4 to 5 days in a month or in some cases 7 days of unexcused absences in a single school year.

The laws vary from state to state but for most places you will get in trouble for truancy if you miss at least 5 days of school without having a good excuse.

Truancy can get the student arrested and sent to Juvenile Detention and even the parents can get arrested for Truancy.

If you get arrested for truancy the student as well as the parents can face up to 30 days in jail for the first offense.

The laws however vary from state to state but if you do miss school and get into trouble with the police for truancy you can expect at least 30 days in jail.

Usually if it's the first offense and the parent's can prove they do not know about it the student would be the one to go to Juvenile detention for the 30 days for truancy.

While in Juvenile Detention you will be forced to do your school work or you could serve more time in jail until you decide to do the school work on your own.

Truancy is not a good thing because not only can you go to jail the parents can go to jail because of educational neglect.

Children must go to school by law or the parents are neglecting them.

You need your education and diploma to get jobs and survive in this world.

School Sucks but going to jail would suck much worse.

Most schools they will call home and contact your parents if you do skip school.

For example if you show up at school and then take off and leave school before it's out and they cannot find you then yes they will call your parents to let them know.

So it's hard to get by with skipping school without your parents knowing.

The school has your parents phone number or phone numbers when you are enrolled in school so they can contact them.

If you're not at school the school will make a call to your parents and see where you are at.

If you do not show up at school they will also call your parents to find out what is going on.

If you're home sick and cannot go to school then your parents need to call the school and let them know.

Also if you do not show up at school and your parents cannot be contacted the school may also call the police and have them look for you or show up at your house to see if you're there.

Hello! Sometimes I feel like my academic performance is nowhere worse, and I honestly don't know what to do about it. My friends tell me to collect all my debts and order work from an essay writer. Do you think this is the right decision? It seems to me that there is no other way out in my case, so do not start your studies the same way I do!
