My gifted 10 year old son I worry about his motivation. Too many things going on in his mind. Acts like writing is a chore. He can do the work and if he puts his mind to it, it's done fast. His scores on test are above average for his grade. He is in 5th grade and the youngest in his class. He got F's on his report card because he doesn't want to do his work. He seems to be depressed. I know I would be if I had to do work all day at school and still came home with all that he didn't finish in school. I feel like I am describing a child that isn't smart but it is the total opposite. He just doesn't want to write. Any advice?? Thanks!!
