My son is in high school and he doesn't want to do homework. He is 14. My kids used to take medication for ADD since he was 6years old. Now after a new physiatrist evaluation the Dr. said he can use some low dosage. we decide to stop with the medications and start with other methods. he has been without medication almost two months. His behavior with the medication was terrible, moody all the time. He is a competition swimmer, he really enjoys swimming. When he come home after school he doesn't have a lot of time to do homework or play. He goes to practice six days in a week 6-8pm and he get out of school at 3:30pm he got home at 3:50pm he ate snacks and start with homework like 4:15pm. if he doesn't have to write he probably be done before 6 ready for practice. I worked as bilingual teacher aid in high school but not in the same school as he is. I always to give space to my kids and to take responsibility for their job at school. yes, I don't check his homework's. Since I was not do in it he start failing in homeworks when I checked online he has a lot incompletes and missing works. When I ask him he always said I don't know. we are really tired of this we tried taking away his games and privileges. He has been without them almost six months. that doesn't worked...
