My 15 year old has had a history project for almost 2 weeks now (due tomorrow), and she is only 1/3 of the way done. She lied to us & told us that she was almost done so she could go to see her BFF & BF this past weekend (DH & I stupidly believed her without checking her work). There is *absolutely no reason* why she should not be done with it by now. She has a history of procrastinating on other projects & homework as well.
SO... DH & I decided that we are taking up her project at her bedtime so she can't finish after she is supposed to be asleep. I hate to do it, but IDK how else to get her to learn. We have taken away her privleges, & tried to help her manage her time. We don't know what else to do to get through to her. Forcing her to stay up & finish wouldn't be punishment because she is a night person, so that's basically giving her what she wants.
She is also losing her phone privlege for a week for lying.
