You are not alone in this! This is a constant battle in our home. My son has tried every activity and then soon becomes bored; currently it is tennis and guitar. He does try to maintain good grades but doesn’t study like I feel he should. Our counselor suggested that I check his grades every week (on Friday) and if he has a “C” (our guidelines) then he loses privileges. This works in our house. Right now he is working on a school project (it is 6:30am) that he could have done on Saturday. Good luck
