How can I get my 11 yearold to pay attention in school? He is very smart but just seems to forget to turn in his work...It is bringing him down...

  • Maybe have him tested? If he is bored because he isn't challenged, then maybe he needs to skip a grade? GL

  • Have him evaluated for ADHD/ADD or a learning disability. And then get him the treatment he needs.
