Man alive this kid is driving us bonkers! My 15 yo ds has nothing but excuses for why he is not doing well in school. Things like, his teachers don't like him, honors classes are suddenly too hard for my kid who has been in honors classes since middle school. He only has 2 real classes this semeseter. Honors English and honors US History, his other 2 classes are PE and weigtlifting. I think he is just not motivated to do well, he just wants to have a good time and puts little effort into his work. He will do the work but if the teacher asks for 1 page, he barely manages a half a page. This is so frustrating. He is more than capable of doing the work. He usually excells in english and history. Of course as soon as we hold him accountable he wamts to run off. Saying things like he cant wait till he can move out. just so frustrating.
