PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!! My son is going to be 13 in June. He does not care about his grades or school. He is very smart, reads at a 10th grade level, so some things come easy for him. He thinks because of that he doesn't need to study or take his time with homework. He is currently getting an F in Math, D- in Science and Social Studies. I'm affraid he isn't going to be passed on to 8th grade. Does anyone have suggestions on how to get him to understand how important grades and school? (He is currently grounded from friends and everything that plugs into the wall, it still doesn't seem to sink in) I am a single mom, his dad is in prison for the next 3 yrs.
