I have a 14 year old daughter who wants to do just enough to get by in school. But to her, getting by is only passing a class with a "C" or sometimes a "D". She simply has no desire to learn, doesn't retain what she reads, and could care less what kind of grades she makes. We have used many disciplinary measures over the last 2 years with no success..it helps for a while only. I know that I can't MAKE her into someone who loves to learn and overachieves, but of course I EXPECT her to make decent grades! This is her personality..she is the same way in sports..she is very talented and athletic, but wants to do just enough to get by. Any suggestions?
