My 13 year old daughter refuses to go to school sometimes and is failing almost every subject? How do I get her to go to school and to complete her work and turn it in? When she doesn't how do I discipline her? I have tried taking her things away and grounding her, taking away all privileges, but nothing works. She is content to stay in her room and sleep. When I make her come down stairs she is content to sit and do nothing but other times she screams and runs back up to her room. She was dianosed with ADD and an anxiety disorder when she was 9 and is on medication. I just dont know how to get through to her. All her testings shows that she is advanced in all areas, but she is going to fail the 7th grade. What can I do to help her?
