My 7th grader is really irritating me. He's always been rather nonplussed about grades, but his recent grades are horrid. He brought home 1 A, 3 D's and 2 F's. The only class he's passing is PE. All his teachers note the same thing, "He'd be passing if he JUST TURNED IN HIS WORK." I'm so mad I grounded him for the rest of the semester. No phone, no Wii, no computer time, no movies, etc.
I warned him that he has till the end of the semester to pull himself up to C's or better or I'm taking time off work to SIT his classes with him for a week.
Anyone else dealing with this attitude? Any advice? Can anyone tell me it gets better??
I worry about him so much because he IS smart and talented, but he keeps sabotaging himself!
