"How do I get my son to do his homework?"

Parents know: getting teenagers to do their homework can be harder than pulling teeth! This week’s Tips On Teens question is from a parent looking for a better way to encourage their child to be proactive about academics:

“Most of the time it is a battle to get my 15 year-old to do his homework. And when he does do it, he then often forgets to turn it in. He says that he wants good grades, but his actions don’t reflect that. (His older sister was the exact opposite. We had to get her to stop studying and get sleep and see friends). Homework has become the bane of all our existences in the family. But he is a great kid, and when we aren’t dealing with homework we all get along beautifully. I don’t want to punish him all the time, and I am against medicating him to fix the problem. How do I help my son?”
