Earned my *F* the hard way.
I have also sent and explanation email to the teacher - DS is extra tired die to an all nightie as a result of neglecting his hw. He is learning algebra and natural consequences on his own. Don't go too easy on him. Sincerely, mom
I know the teachers well enough to know their tolerances. And my kids have got it figured out now finally. Although they slip occasionally.
I know it is my fault for not checking his backpack
You have my sympathies, though. My stbx was a LOT more...ummmm....enabling(?) when he was around and it made it really difficult but there were some issues about child-raising that I felt really strongly about and I didn't give a flying hoot. Dad will 'help' you with your homework (aka -- give you the answers?) No, he won't. It is YOUR responsibility, DS, we are BTDT on 8th grade algebra. Dad says you can stay up until you get your homework done? Nope. Mom says "go.to.bed...homework isn't done because you forgot about it? That sucks, but I bet you won't let that happen again, right?"
*sigh*....this is bringing back memories of my oldest DS who would come home and knock his homework out right away so that he didn't have to worry about it......
In my effort to be *concise*, I often come off as blunt and harsh. Sorry, don't mean to be offensive.
Can you perhaps put routines in place to help him.... He's possibly dealing with the emotions of the changed family dynamic plus teenage hormones...
Let him stay up and do it alone.
Perhaps suggest he empties his bag every night until he's in the habit of doing it himself
