A Question for other Parents of Teenagers


How do you convince them that actually TURNING IN an assignment they have COMPLETED is probably a good idea and that letting it rot in their backpack instead of getting credit for it is not the best way to succeed in school?

And you wonder why I drink...

There is no answer to this. In my experience, either your teen gets this concept, or they don't, and there is nothing you can do to change that. Sorry, Katy.

I just saw your tweet, oh look, it's wine thirty. Love that.

Omg. This KILLS me. Why the low grade? Not turning in assignments?? After all the blood and sweat and tears that IIIII put into it???

It's like they're embarassed to turn it in. I hope summer school is cool.

KILLS me.
