Unmotivated 16 Year Old

My 16 year old daughter is very smart, but is very unmotivated to complete her school work, therefor seems to be running a C average in almost everything. I speak to her teachers who say she 'drifts off' in class. She often gets zeros for homework she 'does not feel like doing'. I realize a C average is not the end of the world, but I know she is capable of more and would like her to be able to go to college.

Sahm's: What If Your Husband Told You to Get a Job, So He Can Quit His?

I've been a SAHM, for 9 years. Hubby has a job.... but the employer sucks. They are dishonest and jerk the employees around. Hubby has recently started looking for another job.

Then he can be on my medical etc. And the kids will need to go to after-school care etc. The kids have medical, via our State sponsored plan. So they are fine. They are covered. My kids are 8 and 5 (in Kindergarten). They both have homework everyday....

Some of the things we cannot cut, such as school loan repayments, etc. Luckily, we do not live on more than we earn, so we will be able to make it on my hubby's income for a while, I hope. But, we are losing 50k a year, so we need to make some drastic changes in our lifetstyle. Our...

She is a sophmore in college prep highschool wich is 2 hours away from home. Last year she could not wait to go, Her brother is a senior at another high school prep school, Now this year she...
