Any good ideas for dealing with lack of motivation in 17 year old son.
Found 10th May 2011
My son has just been told that he should consider dropping out of school when he has finished this year. He is doing his AS levels at the moment and has put almost zero effort in. The head of his sixth form rang me today and said he really needs to consider doing something else as he has been given so many chances and is just not doing the work. I just cannot motivate him to do anything he is not inspired by anything I suggest and has no idea what he wants to do for a career. Does anyone have any ideas I am really worried he is going to end up a lay about which is a shame because when he has gone and done casual work for his grandfather he tells me that he is a great worker.
