Help my 17yr.old is failing school
I have never done this before so bare with me if it sounds goofy.
My son goes to school but is constantly late to some of his classes. Hence, detentions. But of more concern is his grades. He either gets A's or F's. He get's the F's because he doesn't hand in his homework. I am always asking him do you have any home work or did you get it done, his response is don't worry about it. But when I just got his progress report today it was horrible.
I have tried everything form tough love treatment to possitive incentives. Nothing seems to work.
He dosen't get along with his stepfather which I know is a huge problem. Because my husband is so frustrated he deals with it by calling him names. Which I then step in because I don't feel anyone deserves to be called aweful , hurtful names. So then the drama begins.
Anybody have any ideas to help me with this?
