Q:

How to motivate my 9yr old son

Clay used to get good grades but he has been declining the last few semesters. So much so, that he is being labeled as "dunce" by peers. What should I as a parent do to motivate him to focus more in the classroom and try to keep up by doing his class work

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

I often tell parents that children don't purposely become inattentive in the classroom or "mess up" in school. This usually is a red flag that needs to be addressed by the parents and school professionals.

Here are some Education.com links about learning and attending from our website.
