make sure your not nagging him about it, if you are he will not do his homework just out of spite. just take away the things he likes and tell him once what the reason for it is. do not argue the matter, stand up for your self. he is allready old enough to take care of himself. suggest he get a job, hopefully your not paying for all his stuff. also try bringing up sending him to the military. army is my best bet.

Teachers- Get. On. Their. Good. Side. Don't be a teachers pet, because nobody likes those, but don't talk back. I have gotten away with so much because I get on all of my teachers' good sides. [example: my math teacher gave me extra time on a math test because she knew I was struggling. the extra time saved my butt! (and my grade!) ] Friends- Eight grade brings drama. I'm just warning you, stay out of it. Life is wayy to short to spend it fighting with friends! Be that cool member of whatever cliche of friends you're in..the one who never gets involved in the drama!(; Boys- Depends on who you are. I refused to get involved with any boys until high school. (I should have just said college, haha. ) It was tough rejecting the offers from the cute boys that would ask me out, but totally worth it. I wanted to focus on grades. In my opinion, saving boy drama until high school at least it totally worth it. [and as I learned once I started dating: it's not even completely worth it then.] Studying- SO important. Get into good study habits. Set aside time for each class every night so you can study. Studying a little bit each day is SO much easier than cramming for tests! (I'm currently ranked #2 in my Junior class, so I know what I'm talking about! (: ) Organization- Almost as important as studying. Get a (different colored, if you can) binder for each class, and a notebook to match. If you have a locker, buy a little magnetic pencil holder. Get a little planner so you can write down all homework assignments. And, if you want to be as insanely organized as myself, make a calendar for each class for every month. For example, I currently have five calendars hanging on the back of my door. The first is for extra curricular activities and community service events (need them for national honors society and college) and four more for each of my classes this semester. I write down all tests coming up, long term assignments, events, ect. for that specific class. It helps SO much. And for God's sake; get a backpack. I've had the same basic Jansport backpack since 8th grade..it's super cute (and not little kiddish) and has a lifetime warranty. :D Homework- DO. IT. I've never missed a homework assignment in my life. I'm not kidding. That said, I've also: pulled all-nighters, spent my hour bus ride in the morning doing it, done it in/between classes, done some at lunch (as much as I hate it), ect. Just get it done. It can be a major grade booster! Also- don't copy anyone. That's really low, and will end up getting you in trouble. Good luck with everything!(:

Well i suppose you can threaten him by taking away some of his favorite hobbies or some such thing. Or you can open up the whole "You have to or you'll really mess up your life" speech. Use your imagination to make him see the light in being smart and passing through his school studies. Hope i helped.

Well, you could get him a tutor or try to help him on all of his homework. Don't let him go out with friends if he hasn't tried/started on his work. If he's really kind of smart underneath it all, maybe all he needs is a little discipline if he's lazy about it.

the best thing for him is JobCorps, in my opinion. my boyfriend who is my baby's dad is about to be 17 & is going to have to go through it because he is in the same boat. http://www.jobcorps.gov/home.aspx

In my day D.A.R.E. was "if you do drugs your father will beat you black, blue and bloody". Trust me, my dad would have. Both of my kids passed D.A.R.E., but I think the real difference for them was a promise I made them when they were little. "Don't call me from jail if you get caught doing drugs. I'll leave you there until you rot." They knew I meant it. Presto! Two grown, drug free kids. (Pats to me, pats to me!) lol
