He’s fortunate to come from money otherwise this would’ve been an ignorant and reckless choice by the parent to encourage their child to drop out. I wonder if his parents looked into getting them therapy or did they overlook doing that. As much as I didn’t like school, there are benefits there for personal growths among your peers.

Yeah, he's one of those kids who have all the luck - well to do family; money & career. Besides Rich Dad, Poor Dad, we need Good Dad as well.
