So all year long my step son has been failing in school. He's always struggled, but this year has been particularly bad. Usually he struggles some in the beginning, but then pulls things together, and manages to stay close to the A/B honor roll. But this year he has consistently failed, or almost failed every class. This last nine week period, I finally thought he was trying again, but he is failing history, and is only 4 points away from failing science. Not because he can't do the work, but because he just doesn't. Or he does the work, but then never turns it in. He is already missing 7 assignments in world history, and 4 in science.
So how do I get him to care about his school work? HIs future? He's about to turn 13. I only see him on the weekends, so there is a limit to how much help I can provide. Any advice?
Only His Noodly Appendage can enlighten you.
