I have three children two are out of high school and one is a freshman. The third quarter just ended and my 14 year old failed 4 classes. He has never been a straight a student, but he has always passed all his classes. I have grounded him, no cell phone, no computer, not tv in his room, had him empty his room, but it doesn't matter what i take from him, he just keeps failing classes. At mid-term he was only failing 2 classes but when the end came he was failing 4 classes.
He is a smart kids he can do the work he is just lazy, he is a big kids so he is always trying to make people laugh at him.
Does anyone have any suggestions that might be helpful? My next thought is that I am going to get up and go to school with him everyday in my fuzzy slippers, and nighty and bath robe. So, Any suggestions that are not that will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for listening.
