my son just doesn't seem to be motivated anymore. He seemed to be doing okay in 8th grade. Then, he started high school. That's when it all started. Now he's a sophomore and he's just not motivated at all. Taking his phone away doesn't change anything, and he has to have good grades to stay on the baseball team but he doesn't even want to be on the team anymore. Also, he doesn't do any homework. None at all. He stays up till 1 am talking to his girlfriend(great girl, good grades) but she doesn't seem to motivate him. He's losing his chances of staying this school. We are out of district so they don't have to except us.my daughter wants to go there too, so if he can't go there anymore, she loses her chances of going there and she's a good student. How can I get him to take high school seriously?
