My son just turned 15 and is a freshman in HS. He is really bright, not the hardest worker, but has always been able to do well in school. His report card came out the other day and we were really disappointed in his grades...mostly C's. I touched base with his teachers and most of them said he lacks focus and hasn't been completing assignments.
My older son (17) is very troubled...emotional issues, drugs, etc. Between his issues and his doctors and therapy, he is the focus of most of the attention around the house.
It occured to me that maybe my younger son feels like you have to mess up to get attention? any suggestions on how I can get him back on track and provide some positive attention?
