Teenager : Discipline or not?


Our daughter is a senior in high school with a "go to hell world, I'm a senior" attitude. Her grades are poor and she is failing an honors class. Do we take a "let her make her own bed and lie in it" attitude OR should we intervene while we still can? She is a good kid in other ways - no drinking/drugs, etc. She does have a boyfriend. She has always cared more about her social life than school and grades. I'm concerned about her getting into college and then surviving/being successful there if she is struggling with being motivated now. Should we give her a timeframe for improvement or lower the boom now?
