I have children 6, 10, 14, and 21. your son sounds like my 21 year old was in
the fifith grade. Hind site, if I could go back, I would only allow video games
on special occasions like when report cards come out with all A’s and B’s.
would have him tested for allergies to foods, like milk. He was diagnosed with
ADHD when he was 17. I didn’t want to put him on a stimulant, so i ignored the
forgetting and lack of caring about doing a good job.
I also would check to see
if he was depressed. he was, only I thought he was just lazy.I just found out
about two months ago my son was molested by his best friends stepfather around
that time and he never told me. He may have trouble making friends which can
also cause depression.
A strong father figure helps alot.
Sylvan learning center helped my nephew.
Hope any of these suggesstions help.
My mother in- law is a teacher, and she suggests, to make the child spend a half
an hour in each subject even if there is no homework.. usually if there is any
homework they will do it if they know they have to spend time in the subject
