Our son will be 16 next month. He is in grade 10. His grades are not good. He was always an honor roll student until he started HS last year. This marking period he is failing science. His other grades are 3 Cs, and 2 Bs. Over the summer we discovered he was smoking pot. We took him to a therapist, and he still sees him, along with giving him random drug tests which have been negative thank God. However he still lacks motivation. We are upset that he continues to not care about school, study or even join an extra curricular activity. I try to find out what his interests are and motivate him. We warned him if he failed science he would be grounded including weekends. He didn't care. What else can we do???? It's frustrating and hard on us. We want what is best for him.Answer Question

All I can say is keep trying,, Sounds like your doing your part . I have teens also the same thing here , once they got to HS they seemed to stop caring.. just be there, thats really all you can do. good for him too staying off drugs, Good luck to you and your family.
