Dear ADDitude: My Teen Won't Do His Homework!
"My 13-year-old rushes through his homework and often forgets to hand it in. He also has ODD, so he is so stubborn and doesn’t want to study or accept help. He is smart, but his attitude and lack of motivation are holding him back. What can I do?"

I’m going to read the information above, even though it’s too late for school now. I’m hoping the information will get me better prepared for high school this September. I myself have a teenager (13 year old girl) that I was told has ODD. She’s super bright, but doesn’t apply herself, don’t get me started about studying. She’s in the 8th grade and I’m always communicating with her teachers, from homework, classwork and behavior. I help her with tutors, and printing out the homework, reports that she has to do and other items posted by her teachers. I’m hoping for a better way of understanding daughter and school with her being diagnosed with ODD.
