My Husband told our 17 yr old son that if he gets 1 more F on any assignments our son will have to quit his job, and he will sell his vehicle.
(So far since the beginning of the school yr he's gotten an F in English III on a skit he did with another student, and an F on a quiz in anatomy).
His overall grades are: C in anatomy, C in English, B geometry, A in Auto tech, B in Auto tech math.
Do you think that's too harsh?
Sorry, I had to edit it because my Husband said he'll sell his vehicle, not just take it away.

Is there a way for him to earn extra credit? WHY did he get "F's" on those assignments? Were they late? Incomplete? I think selling the car is a bit too much. Taking away his driving privileges is more in line for someone who needs to work on their grades. Ten hours a week isn't much, but if he can't handle work & studies, then maybe he should quit. I would be more inclined to limit his social time since having work experience is important & will help him afford the upkeep on his car. Hubby needs to bend a little. You are the parent too so why not compromise?!
