How do I get my 14 year old daughter motivated to complete all her school assignments on time? She's super smart; it's not that she's struggling. She just doesn't get her assignments done and turned in on time.

I know this sounds childish for a 14 year old, but I would do a rewards chart and offer her some kind of reward for every time she turns in her HW in on time. It has to be a certain number of days in a row though.
I suggested this to a friend who has a 13 year old boy and it actually worked for him. Your reward can be anything you choose, monetary, go out with friends, etc...... I think positive reinforcement begets positive behavior.

As a result, she's failing one of her honors classes (Government) and has a D in another (English, her best subject).
