our DS is failing literature and history in 8th grade - to the point of not summer school but a full years retention! I informed DH that between the teachers, DS and myself our agreement is....everyweek they send home "if report card came today THIS would be DS grade" if it is below a C he looses XBOX, computer time and IPOD (due to internet capabilities). LAST weeks grades would be D- ..... DH took him yesterday and bought a new controller for XBOX. He doesn't view it as a "reward" and now we are in a fight because I am just being hard as DS sat and finished ALL the homework he had been missing AND sat and read a book. NO HE WAS TO BE GROUNDED TIL THE NEXT REPORT CAME! Am I wrong in viewing this?

Your DH was in the wrong, not you. As per your agreement, DS needs to step it up. If he's not putting in the work, then take away privileges.
