My question would be – what is his bedtime? Because tired kids (esp add) have trouble writing. :You have to think of idea, then get it on paper before you get distracted. So …not a punishment, but a help would be an earlier bedtime (no electronics 1 hour before bed)
and see if that helps. also think of the positive – If he does the writing…what happens
could he help the teacher sharpen pencils, pick up trash, staple (something fun, physical)
talk in the car before school about his topics, friends, family, sports, movie,
