I want my new high schooler to be very successful. I have taught him how to keep an agenda, proper way to study each night, most effective ways to study for tests, how to plan out a project,...but he doesn\'t do it. He studies enough to get by, does just enough to get by. The other day I was doing a usual...have you studied your hour today?, when I reminded myself that he is an A & B student. He does well, his teachers all adore him...am I just being controlling or could he be getting himself into a life pattern of \"just doing enough to get by\" even if it is pretty darn good?

I am new to this group and feel so alone sometimes. I have two sons in the prison system, due to drugs mainly heroin. I have three children and who in the world has two boys this happens to? I question every day, my parenting skills, I am an educator so I know better. Their dad has also used, after our divorce. I honestly, don't know how this will get better, prison system is not right....
