2. Such children need a highly supportive environment in order to succeed in school. Here are the things I do for my son to support him, check off the things you would have done in my situation:
Check the school website daily for homework
Getting him off the computer (with a huge argument) to do his homework
Making appointments for him for additional tutoring (free) with teachers and remind my son multiple times to attend
Tell him I love him and he is smart when all I want is just cry from feeling frustrated
All of the above
Other (please specify)
3. I realize that my son might never go to post-secondary education or even have an employment. Do you think it is a wasting of energy for a parent like me to work so hard to help the child to finish his high school?
