I have done the following: offered to get him extra help, spoke with his teachers, all his teacher said sure, offered to pay him for good grades ($100) a piece. Tried to take away things, no results. Held numerous meeting with teachers, counselors, guidance counselors, doctors, psych evaluations, psychiatric consultations, medication. Nothing seem to be helping. He took driver ed classes, loved them when he was there, now trying to get him to contact the driving instructor for driving, not happening. Dropped out of hockey and lacrosse, excelled at both. I have tried just talking to him, he said "YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND" end of discussion. I am at my wits end, any help would be great!

So when my Husband was younger my Mother In Law found out from a teacher that he hadn't been doing his homework among other things. She decided that since he was supposed to be doing his homework in his room that he shouldn't be able to have any privacy so she took off his bedroom door! He learned his lesson that you can't hide in your room when you have no Door!!
