Brooke, my son failed his final math exam for the second year in a row. He says that it was the hardest exam he has ever written and claimed the teacher did not teach them all the concepts that were on it. I am struggling because he still does not acknowledge he is part of the problem and his success is completely out of my control. He doesn’t listen to us and refuses help.
C- son got a 34% on his final
T- He doesn’t care and continues to blame anything and everything outside of him.
A- I made the mistake of pointing out that he still hasn’t grasped that more effort is needed.
R- he refuses to talk.
I can’t even think of an intentional model because I feel like I’m failing as a parent. I’m scared of him and terrified to say no. Which is probably the root of the problem for me. Can you point me in the direction of what I need to do…
