I need advice on my daughter who doesn't ask for help or doesn't think she'll get it and she won't turn in assignments. I have been having her go to homework club after school two days a week and I'm wondering what she's really doing now. I'm not good at math and I talked to her about working on all her assignments but she said she doesn't have enough time so why won't she do it at home. She is getting bad grades more often then before. I was given the advice to find out what is going on in class that would give me a idea because she is not telling me what is going on. I feel sad I can't trust my daughter to do her homework and her brothers always do theirs though she does have seven classes and she sees a councler about school. I lost my temper because I encounged her to turn it in and we found out she didn't and it's been three weeks over due and she hasn't done it. I should've been harder but i felt because she's teen she doesn't need to spacked she old enough know right. No I didn't spack her I did splap her I was upset. I trusted her all this time. I apolgized for hurting her but that we trusted her and want her to graduate from Jr. high do most seventh graders do this and will she ever listen and how do you do it as parents. I was always the one that I thought when I was single i would never slap my kids, spack my kids and I tried everything and what do i do then when they don't don't listen is i lose control over my anger because it's not just one thing now it's more then one now. Now what?
