My oldest son is having some self confidence issues that are causing him problems in school. He does not think that he can do the right things in school, or do well, so he does not do well. He does not turn assignments in on time, if he turns them in at all, or if he even does the assignment. He lies about having done his homework, or having homework. Today, his step dad and I had a talk with him, and I told him that if things do not change, then he will have to repeat the 4th grade. He has such a lack of responsibility. I am trying to get him to understand that I will not be there for him every second of every day to tell him what to do and when to do it. Any ideas?

We also have a chore board for our little ones, they earn magnets, which are traded for money... and that goes into their savings accounts
