How to get a teenage boy interested in doing well in school

My son has been through many challenges. He suffered from migraines and has tried many medications, and has experienced some really bad side effects. He is convinced he should have a medical marijuana card. In addition, he is artistically oriented - he plays the guitar and even writes music. He does not see the point in having to go to school, much less doing well. What can I say to him about this?

migraines
by: Anonymous

My son had the same problems, and I took him off all chocolate, and he started having less and less migraines. Check for food allergy's. He is 25 now and smokes pot. I don't know if the pot helps but he has not had a migraine in several months. I am for the legalization of marijuana for several reasons.

Motivating Teen to Do Well In School
by: Laura Ramirez

I understand the impact that struggles such as migraines can have on a teen in school because my youngest son suffers from them too. Motivating teen to do well in school can be tricky but the key is understanding how your son works and what he cares about.

Start by acknowledging small improvements in school performance such as handing assignments on time, doing particularly well on an assignment or test, etc. Offer rewards for things that cares about for doing well in school. For more info on how to approach this, read my article on teen motivation.
