I am new to the site and hoping to get some advice.
My son is in second grad e and seems so very disinterested in school. This disinterest has created a lack of consistent effort on his part. He's very bright, funny, charismatic and a natural leader but has little interest in school. He believes since he knows how to read, spell and count money there is nothing else to learn. His teacher, dad and i are racking our brains trying to figure out how to help him stay motivated and focused. We also find that he can study at home and master a concept, get to school for a test and not do well. I can give him the exact same test at home and he'll score no less than a 95 on the exact same material.
My daughter is 20 and she was excited about school and absent her test taking anxiety and teenage laziness she was a fair student.
I don't know what to do to help him. Any ideas???
