I really need some advice here. I feel so helpless dealing with my 15 year old son. He just doesn't make good choices. He is failing 3 out of 4 classes with 1 week left! The issue is not turning in assignments. Wether he does them or not. I have seen finished homework in his backpack that he just never turned in! Also, he does everything halfway, like mowing the grass, cleaning his room, homework, baseball, etc. He just seems soo lazy and doesn't "try" hard at anything! I am worried for him if he doesn't get his grades up,he will have to go to summer school, miss working with his grandpa to earn $ (which is a big deal to him), and getting his permit( we told him that he doesn't get his permit until he improves in school). He has already had to take Algebra twice and is failing again. I feel we show tough love with him but we have done everything from talking to him, yelling at him, taking XBox away, etc and I don't see any improvement. PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME THAT THIS WILL COME TO AN END !!!!!!!
