My 16 year old isn't doing very well in school. She has very low grades in Math and Chemistry. She is supposed to go to tutoring in the mornings before school but seems to forget from the time she gets out of the car till her feet hit the pavement. I email her teachers and they say she hasn't done any of the things she is telling me. She will tell me that the teachers weren't in their classroom or she forgot, etc.. I have contacted the counselor and he has given me his cell phone number so that I can call him when we get to school, so that he may walk her to class. Does anyone have any suggestions on what else I can do maybe at home?

Oh man. This is a tricky one. Does she have her own car? It sounds like she may need to start loosing privileges. Instead of having tutoring at school, maybe you can schedule it for a time at home that you will be there to ensure she is doing it. Also, having a sit down with all her teachers, and principal to hash out a plan, then have her come and sit down with all of you and discuss it.
