Your teenager isn’t trying at school and is getting failing grades. How involved should you be in getting them on track? Should you let them fail?
“My parents need to back off. All that nagging does is make me less likely to do my homework – out of spite. I’d get way more done if they would just leave me alone.”
Could your truculent teen actually be right? There is a strong argument for not being a homework cop. How will they ever learn to take the responsibility for doing what needs to be done if you are always on their case?...
