I have a 15 yr old son who has started acting out. My husband and I are looking for ANY suggestions/advice that you an offer. It will be appreciated.
Our teenager is a sophmore in high school and his grades are all over the place! He fails at class work, but excels on ALL tests. He's always talking in class and being disruptive. Getting put out of class, detention, and suspension seems to be the "cool things" to do. I'm near my boiling point. His light bulb refuses to come on. We try to encourage him, involve him in activies, etc...but he's not getting it. He doesn't understand that colleges will see ALL of this crazy behavior and may put a gray cloud on his future...
