My son is 15 and very inteligent IQ over 140. My issue is his not being very attentive to his home life and school grades. He will be in the 10th grade in the fall and I am concerned with his GPA. He could have easily gotten a 4 point last year, but because he did not turn in most of his homework his GPA was only 3.49 (good I know). I don;t understand why he does it if he is not going to turn it in. I also don't understand how he can be so book smart and easily learn most anything he tries, but still has to be reminded daily to do chores, homework and even everyday things like showering and brushing his teeth. He is very sweet and loving and yet has a fairly poor attitude when I have to repeditly remind him to do this stuff. Any sugestions would be greatly welcomed!!!!!
