My son seems to be too smart for his own good. He has always been strong-willed, which has its own challenges. On top of that, we found out late last year that he has high intelligence. Well, we've had an ongoing problem all school year - he refuses to do his homework.
Homework is more difficult than last year (thankfully) because he is in the gifted program at school. Last year he finished it in 5 minutes and got virtually all of the answers right. Now, however, he procrastinates constantly to the point where it does not matter what the consequences are, he still won't do it.
Every privelege has already been taken away. It looks like he will miss an upcoming field trip. His teacher experiences similar problems in class whenever the work is something he does not like. She said some gifted kids won't work on things that don't interest them.
Anyone out there have a similar problem? What did you do to resolve it?
