My 12 year old is in 7th grade and is failing almost all of her classes. She has ADD (no negative comments about ADD please, I've heard them all) but is not on meds. We don't want to put her on meds but are getting desperate. She doesn't seem to care that she is missing assignments or that she is loosing privileges like going to school dances. She is running the risk of repeating the 7th grade. School isn't the only problem. Chores, showering, brushing her hair... We've tried chore charts, lists, paper organizers of all sorts for school work. I need more ideas!
