What should I do when one of my children is irresponsible about turning in homework and class assignments on time; but his teachers brag that he can ace any exam/test that is given to him? When I talk to him about this he just says I have an A already. Ive talked with his teachers and this is true. In fact he has a B in one subject and its only because he gets points deducted for late work. He seems to think this is ok as long as his grades are good but his teachers say he should be in accelerated classes but he does not apply himself...HELP!

I had the same problem with my 17 yr old son. Your son is probably bored. Ask if his teacher can give him some more challenging work.
