Now up until 8th grade if he missed his medicine, there would surely be a call from the teacher and/or principal. Now in 9th grade, he did get suspended a couple of times for fighting. But it was not from his ADHD. Anyway, he stated that he wanted to be drug free and that medicine makes him feel weird so he doesn't want to take it. I supported it at first because I didn't get any calls regarding disruptive behavior from his teachers and I kept in contact with him to let them know what was going on. But he has failed all of his classes except PE. Summer school would be $250 dollars in which he will only make up .5 credits and if he doesn't do the work that would be $250 wasted. I've taken away everything. His xbox, computer privileges. Nothing is working. He does his chores i.e. dishes, mow lawn, washes his clothes, cleans the bathroom. He gets the normal teenage attitude but I don't know what else to do to motivate him. I was told to let him fail and maybe he'll realize theAnswer Question
