My son, 12, is in middle school. He's smart, creative, and has the biggest heart. He was tested for gifted in third grade and has a 131 IQ. That being said... he's completely unmotivated. It's not constant. We have waves of motivation throughout the year, but I'm tired of the roller coaster ride. My husband and I are trying everything we can think of. I'm a teacher myself and can't seem to get through to him. This is not a new problem. We've been dealing with this on and off since 3rd grade. I've had parent conferneces, had guidance counselors involved. I'm sure I can not be the only mom going through this. Hoping to get a little advice and insight from other parents. Thanks!
