My son, Tyler, refuses to do and turn in homework and has gotten disrespectful to his teacher and me. He is very intelligent and knows the material but just seems lazy. I have tried grounding him, taking away all electronics, lecturing,etc. He has had fun times taken away at school and nothing is working. I am at my wits end and have run out of ideas. Please help!!!!
Sit there with him till he gets it done and start taking away his things and have him earn them back one at a time. He does nothing but come home and do what he has to do. No talking with friends, NOTHING

That's a tough question. My son is 2, so we haven't been through that yet. If you've tried everything else, maybe bribery? Finish your homework, and we'll go get ice cream? Good luck!

Next question overall
Do I have to medicate my son if he is ADHD and has problems focusing in school?
