My 11 yr old daughter. Just does not seem to care about school or anything. She is continually uprooting our household. Example: this evening, I ask if she has homework - she say No. ( she had a 59 in science at mid-term and brought it up to a 70, it’s now back at 68) Anyhow, I look on-line to check her grades and homework. It says, she has science that is due on Monday. I ask if she has her science book with her, she says Yes. I ask if she has science class tomorrow, she says No. I ask her to take her book out of her backpack and leave it at home, so I know, she’ll have it this weekend to do the work. SHE has a FIT. Why, that’s stupid and I explain it again and again to her. I tell her, I know, I’ll get the “I forgot” tomorrow, when I ask if she brought her science book home. She just doesn’t care.
Anyhow, last week we went to a counselor

You said you both saw the counselor? Maybe she needs to talk to someone alone. Plz don't take this personal, but remember when we were younger? The last person we wanted to tell how we were feeling was our parents. With the changes in hormones and the pressures of school, she must have been hurt by someone or something someone has said to her. Children are very cruel in school. Maybe its time to get her out of the house and doing some things to get those endorphins working! Do those indoor rock climbing, or laser tag game places. Something to make her feel special. Take her to have her nails and toes done. Or have a few girls over for a slumber party. But first, get her out of the house and away from the TV. I know about depression, and TV adds to it! I pray the Lord will give you insight and direction. That you will have favor with your daughter and a new bond!

Next question overall
Do you trust your DH/SO when he is out with his friends?
