My 12 year old has just been freed up from his grounding from last time he disrespected me. This time I asked him to come and do 2 fractions because his math mark was unacceptable. He ignored me and went to his room. I counted to 3 and warned he wuld lose electronics for one week. He said hateful things and that I didn't understand him. i said I understood that he hated fractions but that his teacher was expecting him to get extra help at home. And just because he didn't like it did not mean he didn't have to try his best. I counted to 3 again and had to take a second week of electronics away. He was adamant! I counted to 3 again and had to tell him I would be taking him to school on 2 snowdays. He was still adamant. I then took all his priveldges away as he gave me the finger. He will have to earn them back. He is also staying in his room for one day and has 100 lines to write out. The 2 fractions are still not done. He says he does not care what I do to him. Please help.
