Thanks for the encouragement. We have a parent-teacher conference next week and I am hoping that we can work something out. The teachers are giving the students chances to makeup work before school and one teacher has even sent home a packet to help take some of the "0's" off. It just scares me to think of him failing. I would not want that to happen. It would absolutely destroy him.
Have a great day everyone,

I've worked in elementary, middle and highschools all and by far the kids in middle school seem to have and make the most problems. They have the hormone thing going on true but they are out of their comfortable nest of elementary school and in a whole new strange and wonderful area. They are a little frightened and intimidated. They have more freedom, different friends and a lot of attitude. Now they are no longer little kids but also not one of the older kids. They wonder how to fit in. Middle school teachers don't pamper as much and remind them as much so now they must learn responsibility. You will live through it but it won't be easy. It seemed harder on me when my girls went through all that than when I was there myself.

I agree. I do not remember it being so tough when I went through middle school but a lot has changed since then and I was not the social butterfly by any means. I always tried to hide from the teachers just because I was extremely shy and did not like to be called upon in class. My son is just the opposite. He is doing well right now about the attitude. He has his moments but it is just when I am on him constantly about getting his homework done. He is a daydreamer which does not help the situation either. Thanks again for all the advice.
Have a great day everyone,
