Test Read Positive, but Still Have Irregular Spotting

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 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. I have taken away privliges, offered incentives, etc, and she says she will do better, and may for a very short time, then its back...

Planning a 2Nd Child

Our firstborn just turned 1, and we're starting to talk about #2! Just wanted some feedback from parents with kids 2 years apart and 3 years apart. I know every child and sibling relationship is different, but just wanted some thoughts on benefits/drawbacks of spacing children.

My 16 Year Old

I have a 16 year old daughter who is very smart, but she doesn't do her work at school. She has always just gotten by. This bothers me, because I try to excel in whatever I do, but she just accepts mediocrity and I don't believe she tries hard. I just got her progress report and she is not passing any classes. I don't think she's into drugs. She could probably be having sex because I can't monitor her every move, but she does have to be in the house by 9 week day and week end. Her father and I just put her on punishment for the bad...
