How can I motivate my son to work hard in school?
Ever since he was in Kindergarten, my husband and I have gone to numerous meetings with the schools and teachers in regards to him. They always tell us how intelligent he is, but he doesn't want to do his work or turn it in, or would shut down all the time. For years, we've dealt with these issues and tried so many different things to no avail. Now here I am looking at him possible repeating seventh grade again for the third time all because he just doesn't care, has no motivation, etc. So yesterday, I decided that it was time to take away his playstation and his psp player and I explained to him that until I start to see some real change in him as far as his schoolwork and attitude, he will not see the games until I see real improvement.
I just don't know what else to do. My husband and I are so frustrated. We love him so much but just don't know what else to do. After so many meetings with teachers, etc etc. I am so tired of all the talking but no results.
Anyone have any thoughts on what we could do to help him....?
