My 15 year old son has gone from an A and B student to a C and barely passing D student this year in highschool. He tells me he doesn't like being an over achiever or "smart kid" and only did it to make us happy. He's become very lazy, I mean goes out of his way to be lazy, and is just making poor decisions regarding school this year. Hes on the verge of failing for the first time. Forgets everything all the time, just cant seem to get it together. Should I be worried, or is this truly a phase like I have been told? We are also military and husband is deployed and we just moved so hes in a new school, but this is not a new thing for my son, so I am not going to let that be an excuse.
