Thoughts or Ideas? He isn't listening and grades are slipping.Update in Replies
Honestly I don't know what to think anymore...
My youngest son is turning 13yrs soon. He acts more like a 15-16 yr old. in respect to his laziness and attitude. My oldest son went through this too, but it was when he was that age! My youngest has come straight out and told me it doesn't bother him or even affect him when he is grounded...he just doesn't get to see his friends except at school. No big deal to him! It doesn't matter how many chores we give him, how much we discipline him, explain things to him or anything. WE have taken away his computer, he doesn't have a TV or cell phone...next on the list would be his bed.
His grades aren't too bad, but they are not where we expect to see them either...He's getting a good mixutre of A's & B's but he has slipped in a few classes and receiving a few C's (2). He's "forgotten" to turn in homework and seems to just ignore what we have to say to him about school/grades. It's like he just doesn't care.
I guess frustration has set in with me. He is a bigger kid, stands 5'6" and weighs 210lbs. He has always been a bigger person and always been so loveable, tender hearted etc. Just don't know anymore....
