My step daughter is 13 (8th grade) and is not even trying in school. My husband and I have tried to have multiple talks with her about what's going on and she says "nothing" Her teachers (all of them) told me that she's just sitting in class talking, not doing her work. Last week we had yet another talk with her about applying herself and she was great, for the first day. I looked at her science notebook yesterday and no class work had been done for 3 days. So she tried... the first day. Then it was right back to giving up. We've tried taking things away, positive reinforcement, everything. Nothing works. My husband and I are both at a loss for what to do. Any advice? Or any been there done that stories?
