My son received his report card and his grades did not improve he has F, D, and C, therefore he continues to be on punishment. As the teacher and I have realized, he rushes to complete his work, doesn't study when he is supposed to be studying, has no interest in improving his grades, and isn't receptive to help when I try to help him. Whenever he responds in a dis respectful manner he is reprimanded for this, which is when he indicates he hates his life. This kids has everything (yes that is probably most of his problem), he is 11 and I don't want to loose him however, I refuse to allow him to run my home, there are rules in place and I expect him to make all efforts to abide by them and rule 1, is respect the rules of the house and one of the rules are to be able to enjoy your hobbies and leisure activities you have to maintain your grades and put as much effort into your education as you do your hobbies and respect authority. He gets upset when he has to put in extra effort when studying and that is a pet pee because I am the type of person when I want someone or when there is something that need to be done tell and I will make whatever moves needed to accomplish what need to be accomplished.
