Hello, my name is Vanessa and I have 6 children but 3 of whom live with their dad in another state. I see them usually for the summer and Christmas... My current problem is with my 13 year old. Her grades are so bad, she is failing every class. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


My 13 yr old loves cupcakes I promised her a dozen of her favorite kind (dark chocolate with raspberry filling and a raspberry on top ) for pulling her grade to a 75 or above (she's having a hard time in math ) so while her grade was failing she had a choice go to tutoring in the morning or go after school on Monday Thursday and Friday . She brought it up and received her cupcakes on Friday . New deal is she can get another dozen for bringing it up to a 80...that means no work turned in late.

Not trying to be mosey but have you had her tested for learning disabilities?
If y'all are in Texas and she is on medicine and seeing a counselor for whatever ( my daughter has ADHD and PTSD ) since bc of that she is 504 meaning they can't fail her bc she doesn't get it.
Their options to help her get it. Someone to take notes.
Extra time on tests. Someone to read to her . Carry books, all sorts of things if your not in Texas I'd see what kind of help she can get... There's no need for her to fail...she might be depressed and just not care or be interested in the classes...or she's being bullied if age will talk to you about have a mommy and me day with her only go do something fun. Getting your nails done, go to a movie she wants to see, lunch out ,then her favorite dessert ...then talk to her in a calm relaxed setting where she doesn't feel threatened.
Hope this helps feel free to inbox me if need more support. I've been there b4 she was diagnosed she was failed in 5th grade and had to repeat it. We changed schools and found one who understood the problem and fixed it so she would get it...she is now in pre ap classes. Still has trouble in math though that's where the cupcakes come in

Hi Amory and welcome to the group! I agree with Bmat that it sounds like you have to make your husband do the things he agrees to do without your help or involvement. He's an adult and therefore should take responsibility for following through when he gives his word he'll do something. :)

Hi my name is Amory, I just moved ta new area with my family. that includes my son and his dad. we have been trying very hard to adapt. somehow I ended up being the bread winner while he stays home and watches our year old. Now, I have a neighbor that that has been making me feel uncomfortable. to begin I am not tht welcoming of a  neighbor for many reasons. that being people like to take advntage. it started off with calls asking me and my husband to pick up baby form the bus, and now they want to drop off the kids every other day at our house. i dont know if im over reacting but, yesterday the parents lied to my husband so that he can agree to watch the kids. and which he did. and so i found out that the mom was home. so i sent their kids back home. today I picked up my son from the bus and didnt pik up her kid. when i got home myhusbabd yell like go get the kid. half way through the block i see her pick her kid so i turn back around back home....minutes later they are knocking on the door and calling me. how do i end this. I mean Im the bi..t..c8ch! and my husbands the pleaser. if i set boundaries my husband goes right back on what i stand for. they have no sense of limitations. Im done. they are good people but they need to dtop making me responsible for their children. you know babysitting is a job and people do get paid for it.

Middle school is a tough time for kids. Your 13 year old daughter might have some distractions in the classroom which makes it hard to absorb what her teachers are trying to teach. If you can try to speak with each teacher either with a note through email or in person. Get the work sent to you that she might of not completed and have her complete it. Also she can do xtra credit if the teacher allows it. Best thing to do is talk to her before it is past the time to bring up the grades. Also talk to her in private - go for a car ride and just talk.

My granddaughter turned 2 in April so my daughter made her a beautiful cake. We had Disney Balloon, tablecloth with balloons, matching napkins, paper plates and we got her age appropriate gifts. Had a nice time with family. No matter what you do just remember to take lots of pictures.
