My son has always struggled with being disorganized and not turning in homework. This year as a freshman he has finally crashed and burned - he's just flunked algebra, spanish and english! He is a very smart kid, in fact he just got "commended" on his state-wide math assessment and he has always been an A student in english. I'm so upset and worried and I don't know what to do to help him.
For years, my husband and I have tried to help him be more organized and keep track of his work. Planners, folder systems - we've tried everything. Now that he's in highschool he can't shoot from the hip anymore. I worry about what this will do to his self esteem as well as his GPA. Any advice?
