I got another email from my son's teacher today stating that he just doesn't seem to care about bringing ANY of his homework home. And believe me, when I say we've tried everything, I mean we have literally tried everything from reward and behavior charts, taking things away, grounding, etc.You name it, we've tried it and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IS WORKING. We are trying to find out what is blocking his motivation because he doesn't even want to try but haven't been able to. I'm so afraid that he will get too far behind and not be able to catch up, therefore, failing and having to repeat the fourth grade. I am not giving up but to be totally honest, I feel like doing so sometimes. Then I feel even worse for feeling THAT WAY. And to top it off, I feel like I'm failing him because as a parent, I should know what to don't anymore. I just don't. Also, he started with a new counselor tonight.Answer Question

My oldest girl (just turned 31 today) was a born social butterfly. She was more worried about friends and phone calls then her homework. What we did was find some big thing that was coming up. Going to Mts to stay with Aunt. Girl Scout weekend outing. Slumber parties. Then we made a homework chart. If all the homework as agreed on as homework by the teacher. Was done on time then she got to go. If not, No good stuff. After she missed one event. She never missed the homework again. At least not any that I knew of. And I called the school every Mon and asked. She didn't like it. But it worked.
