I also have a 13 year old boy, but he loves school. I don't no if i would say love. He does well in school. Kids now days get away with alot and the law has taken any kind of control we had. Maybe get him involved in some activities that he like, but will give him some self disipline. Like Air Cadets, marshal Arts or something along that line. I did that with my son. I put him into Air Cadets, now he wants to be a pilot. Hes already been up in a glider and he love it.. Sorry about the letters not showing up right. I need a new key board. Keep trying and have faith that things will work out for the best. All kids go through all kinds of things. I have three boys and my 13 year old is the youngest. So good luck and God Bless Let me no if this helps in any way. One other thing about your son not liking school. Maybe if it was made as an award system. That might work. Or make his homework fun, if you can. Sometimes you can't But it's worth a try. bye for now.

was he an over-achiever prior to HS? HS is a BIG change from middle/jr high. i would speak to his teachers, find ways to make the learning experience fun for him again?
