Susan in TN Posted September 13, 2012 Share Posted September 13, 2012 I'm sorry if this is discussed ad nauseum. If you had an 11th grader who by all accounts is responsible, has a generally good attitude and is a "good student", but continually fell behind in school work, how would you go about diagnosing the issue? We've had numerous discussions over scheduling, prioritizing, goal setting, working ahead on weekends, etc. We've asked him what he thinks would help him. He's cut back his extra activities from 6 to 2 (his own decisions). Still he struggles and it frustrates me to no end. I'm wondering if I should tail him for a day and see how his school day goes - find out if he's really utilizing his time well or if there is some other issue? At his age I hate to act like a babysitter, but honestly, it seems he might need one :tongue_smilie:. Any other suggestions? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
