My girl is unmotivated. With her school work she is not focused in class and doesn't hand in homework regularly. she attends an elite private school in Melbourne Australia and I am working my butt off to let her go there.
She is a lovely girl, good natured, well....some of the time... I think she is lazy and she is also messy with her school work, her bedroom and will only do the minimal work she has to do to get her pocket money at the end of each month.
Have we spoiled her by treating her like a princess and not having to do stuff for herself?
She just will not push herself and gives up if anything is too hard.
I don't know what to do.
It is hard to describe it all in writing.
