Please be respectfully honest about what I am doing wrong with Gavin. I cannot get anything out of him at all concerning school. Says he hates it,says he is stupid, nobody likes him,and always saying he cannot do things and wont even try. At times when he does not get his way, he says I wish I was dead. What have I done to my grandson,and how can I help him?

He needs help, and while you have probably enabled him (I say that because I did too!), he is only 9 years old.....find a good counselor fast! It is soooo scary to hear a child say, I wish I were dead. I am sure that you love him; however, he is probably having social adjustment issues. I struggled with my son for years over school issues. Everyone was shocked when I let him drop out of school at the age of 16.

He passed his GED and CDL on his first try with outstanding scores. My son is highly intelligent; however, did not do well in a school environment. He is still struggling to deal with social situations that I wish I would have addressed when he was younger.....
