I have a 15 years old son almost 16 on February, he has ADHD and on IEP last year he was in ROTC you're supposed to be in there for 2 years but this year he didn't want to he want to do Spanish class now he is crying about being hard and has an F, what should I do about his grade. Should I ask the office to take a nap Spanish class or just leave it alone and ground him I need help. I have 11 years old daughter soon to be 12 in December she is normal classes she has an F in English what should I do should I ground her what should I do take things away what I need help anyone out there. I definitely don't know what to do with my son if I take something away he has a bad attitude and tells me to get lost or he'll talk back or he'll just look at me and laugh what should I do about that.

Can you have a talk with him and find out why he is failing? Maybe he is struggling and needs extra help, or is he just not turning in assignments? Can you talk to the teachers for daughter and son? You cannot do anything about his grade. In high school the child is responsible for his/her grades and the consequences. Is there a male authority figure in your home? His response sounds disrespectful. Foreign language is difficult. Perhaps he can take an alternate class. If he will attend a community college he does not need the foreign language class. Has your daughter struggled previously? Has she been tested for Dyslexia? I am a Dyslexia tutor and a terrible speller is one sign. Just suggestions....
