I have a 14 year old. Shes a great kid, never gets in "real" trouble, Loves all her classes and teachers. However...
She has 5 classes in high school, 4 out of 5 classes she does great in. She has all A's and B's in those classes. This one particular class she is struggling hard core. Not because she can't do it, but because she turns her work in late and gets half the grade, which in turn drops her grade extremely low.
We have been dealing with this since school has started this year and it is the only class that this occurs! I try to talk with her and understand why, the only "excuse" I ever get is because she does not finish it on time. This particular assignment is due the same time every week, Friday right when class starts.
I have tried grounding, I think she has been grounded since school has started (I feel like). Her grounding usually consists of all electronics are taken away (phone, tv, netflix, etc) She has her normal chores around the house. This is not working and I am at a lose.
I am struggling because I do not want to take a way her social life, she barely has one to begin with. She is not in sports, she does not go to parties, she does not stay with anyone. This is not because she is always grounded, this is because she has 2 "real" friends. Suggestions??? Thoughts???
