Caution: Child in Charge


Our recently-turned 11-year-old boy is really hating school this year. He seems to think he knows what he needs to learn for his future and the rest is a waste of his time. He is a very bright boy, and we more than suspect he is very bored at school. We have chatted with his teacher but he has not responded to being further challenged. He sees it as more work. There have been days we can barely get him out of bed. He always seems fine at the end of the day. However, trying to get him to always do his best on anything he works at is proving very difficult, yet is a value we would like to instill. Is it too late? Should we say life is not always fun and entertaining but you still need to do your best? (we have said that actually) Any suggestions?
