What am I going to do?

I need help. Guidance. Suggestions. Whatever.

My 11-year old...smart thing...lazy thing. The teachers post their grades online throughout the grading period so parents can see what's going on and not be surprised come report card time. Well, I'm looking at Jacob's and he's got 2 C's. He shouldn't have C's. Heck, he shouldn't even have B's but I'm willing to give him one grading period in Middle School to get used to things. And those C's are in 2 of his favorite subjects. Why? HE'S NOT DOING HIS HOMEWORK! WTF? Why not? I have no idea. And what's worse is he lies about having any or getting it done. And the times when I do KNOW he's done the work? He doesn't turn it in. Is he looking for attention? Is he too overwhelmed with starting middle school? What can I do?

Well, he's not flunking. My son does the exact same thing. He just doesn't seem to want to take the time to do really well. I figure as along as he's still getting decent grades I'll let it slide. My ds is just lazy.

Good luck!
