So I have a 14 year old daughter that is very smart, kind,and loving. She helps out with her 6 year old sister babysitting and picking her up from school. She is a good girl that is involved with the church and attends a girls bible study weekly. But she is very lazy when it comes to her school work. When she puts in effort she will have a A or B. but too often she does not do her class work, homework, or study. She frequently has zeros and D's and F's are acceptable to her. I have begged, cried, pleaded, offered help and have provided all tools necessary but there is never any improvement. I have offered money, vacations, you name it and it does not motivate her. I have taken away phones, tv, computer, for months and it does not phase her. We took away birthday and Christmas presents last year, offered everything she wanted this year as long as she does good in school but it doesn't work. I feel so hurt, angry, and disappointed that it takes away from everything fun I want to do for her and give her. I don't know how to change this, any advise would be appreciated!
