well my A+ student just got a B.... in math of all things. This is the kid who scored 100% on the state testing... I had the principal calling me at home to congratulate us. And here he is in middle school getting a B on a test.
This is what I told him (the same thing I tell my B daughter).... you know who rules the business world??? The B students who worked their butts off for Bs. You know why... because when you are in business it doesnt matter a who-ha how easy it comes to you if you do not have a work ethic. It doesnt matter if you are the sharpest pencil in the case if you dont make your clientel happy and work your butt off.... even if they are wrong and you are smarter than they are.
So you know what I dont give a flying pig poo if you think Bs are ok.... what is important is 100% effort.... AND YOU DID NOT GIVE IT.
How do you disiplin your A student??????

The hardest thing is keeping an A student motivated. When a A comes so easy it is way too easy to be lazy. I did my best work (still do) when I am busy. No time to waste goofing off. Gotta get the next thing done. Is there something you can get him involved in: the school play, sports, tutoring. When his day is full he won't have the I'll do my homework on the bus attitude. Boredom is your enemy.

I think you are being a little hard on the kid. He is only in middle school. If that is the only thing he has done wrong. You should be glad. he has not even go to high school yet. Or College.
