My ADD son is in 5th grade with a "B" average. He gets wonderful compliments on his behavior, thoughtfulness of others, etc. in school from school staff. He has focus, it seems, when he wants to, but when he decides he doesn't want to do schoolwork, he just doesn't. He expends lots of energy into avoiding doing all of his schoolwork instead of just doing it. This has been occuring all school year. Recently he had to stop taking Adderall because his liver and kidney counts were high, but there seems to be no change in his behavior towards schoolwork. I am beginning to wonder if it's not even an ADD thing. I have tried talking things through, raising my voice, grounding him, pleading with him, spanking him, and telling him he will need to go to summer school until he improves his habits. Nothing seems to work. He seems to care, but during school, he just wants to skip the less desirable topics for the topics he enjoys more.
