My 12 year old has never been an A student. She has reading comprehension issues. She wants the grades so she can play sports but she just won't put in the effort to get them. I've tried helping her but with the age, she is extremely moody and takes what I say the wrong way. She constantly says I think she's stupid. I DO NOT! I struggle to find the right way to get her to engage, care about the outcome, and study ahead so she's not always crunching at the last minute.
