Circle One - What am I saying to myself about my twelve year old son whose grades are falling?
"He doesn't get it. He's not doing his homework. He's distracted. Always playing games on the computer. The teachers tell me that he daydreams. I ground him and take away his privileges. Even that doesn't work. He doesn't seem to have any ambition. He's driving me up the wall. I get so damn frustrated with him. I want to see him do well. If he stays on this track, what will happen to him in high school?"
Circle Two - How am I responding to this problem?
