I'm so ready to pull my hair out! My son has been an honor roll student his entire academic career. This year he is in 3 honors classes and has decided to take a siesta from studying, at least for the first semester. I don't know how to motivate him...have tried threats and consequences as well as the other side of things (i.e. rewards for good grades and study habits) nothing is working. He is in his freshman year and I'm worried he isn't going to snap out of this. We have 3 other children and can't afford to send him to college without the help of scholarships, which if this continues, will not be a possibility. Any body have any ideas?
