Don't fall for high school soap operas

Q: Our 15-year-old son, a high-school sophomore, was an honor student until he got to high school and took up with a group of kids who think good grades are "uncool." As a result, his grades have been in the tank all year (and most of last year). We put him on slight restriction after his first report card, but nothing changed. For the past three months, he's been on full restriction: no social life, no outside activities (unless at our church), no cell phone, television, computer (unless absolutely necessary for schoolwork) or video games. All the things he ...

Hesitation can be costly for diagnosis

Q: Our 19-year-old daughter is dating a 19-year-old boy, who, in general, we like. He's not a partier, he doesn't smoke or drink, he's serious about his education and he has a rational career plan mapped out. Our daughter also is a responsible, level-headed girl. The problem is that the boyfriend's response to almost anything my daughter says is a cut or put-down, a dismissal of her accomplishment or mocking. She says his father does the same thing to him, his brother and their mother; so to him, it's "normal." Our daughter is an upbeat ...
