Wow man it's like the personalities just switched. 16 year old son is starting to get his act together, getting more and more things, bringing his grades up, etc. He does have a few setbacks every once in a while. I don't expect him to be perfect and he's not and I do expect a few setbacks but as long as he is facing the right direction then I am happy.
14 year old daughter however just did a marathon run into his old ways. Previously honor roll and all advanced courese, headed into AP and Dual inrollment coures brought home 2 Fs on her progress report. She's now lieing about almost everything, is annoying as can be (even at her younger sister who usually gets along with her fine), denies every thing, blames everyone else (of course her teachers are lieing about her) and everything else. The only thing she's not doing is getting violent. I hope it doesn't come to that.
Just when things start looking up, we get another one tumbling down.
