I have a very bright teenage son in 9th grade. He is normally such a great boy, but he just will not do his homework and turn it in. He gets good marks as far as respect etc in class. He just lies and says he does his homework, then we get emails from his teachers that he hasn't done it. So we took everything away, and I mean everything. This has been going on since 7 th grade. He barely passed last year. This is his first year of hight school, and same thing is happening. He no longer has a phone in his room, no cell phone, no computer, no music, nothing. This happened last night after he blatantly lied to his father. I hope this works. I don't know what else to do. He can do the work, he just thinks for some reason he doesn't have to. Has anyone else had this problem, and what did you do to solve it. His dad and I are at our wits end. I can't believe he just lies to use and it doesn't even bother him. He got upset last night, but not because he was sorry, but because he lost all priveleges. Before we would take something away and it never helped. This time was the whole shebang.
