  • I have 1 teen -only child- ,he used to be a straight A student but lately has been dipping into some B's how he improves them depends on how low they are, if anything is below an 85 he gets things taken away until the next 5 weeks, he gets a 5 week report and report cards every 10 weeks. If all are above 85 he gets $1.00 for every point raised, but looses $1.00/point for any grades that drop. On school nights he turns off videogames, phone, computer at 10:30 and can watch tv or read until 11:00 in bed. On weekends it depends on what is going on the next day.

  • One 16-year old boy; gets As, Bs, an occasional C. No going out w/friends during the week, no video games during the week, no computer during the week (unless it's for homework), cell phone is allowed but only after homework is completed. We check grades (online) weekly; it anything starts to slip, the cell phone goes until grades come back up. Bedtime during the week is 11; 12 or 1 on weekends.

  • My boys are 16 & 18...the youngest is in 10th grade and makes pretty much all A's....he takes honors classes and will more than likely graduate early...he usually goes to bed about 11:00 but it is usually about 11:30 by the time he goes to sleep...(he gave up naps when he was 1 1/2 and never really required much sleep)...the oldest is a freshman in college...he makes A's & B's (mostly) and goes to sleep whenever...they both know that they are responsible for getting themselves up ever morning and getting to school on time....if it gets ugly then I get involved...and it gets uglier then....AJ
