Argh!! I have to vent here so I don't fly off the handle with easy child (and believe me I don't really know that she is a easy child at all). I looked at easy child's report card on line. She is such a bright girl but let her grades go so far down. Last quarter she had an "A" in World History, this quarter, an "F"! She went from a "B" to a "D" in English! Many of her other As went to Cs. She did keep Geometry and Science at Bs and I think maybe an A in Drama. She didn't fail anything for the semester just the quarter but it drives me crazy because she is so bright. With minimal effort she could be getting As and Bs. She never studies for her finals but gets all As and Bs over the years with the exception of her World History final. Nothing we say gets through to her, no consequences get through to her. I guess husband and I at are at a point where we don't know what to do short of letting her feel the natural consequences. She'll probably lose her full scholarship she had an opportunity to earn and she so plans on going to college. Thanks for listening to this vent so I don't lose it at home!!
