My son is 13 and has been diagnosed with ADD. The school is helping him, but he may have to repeat the grade. His is very smart but lazy, inconsistent, and not motivated. It does not seem to bother him that he may not be promoted to the next grade with his friends. I have been against meds to help him, but there are so many new medications for ADD maybe one would help him stay focused, but than I have to get him to take it which is another problem. He is very difficult. I really do not know what to do, I have taken things away from him, he does not care, but I want him to do good in school, I am lost. Do I let him repeat the grade and maybe he will learn a lesson??Answer Question
