He has to do his homework before he gets games/tv. He also knows that Momma checks it and if he just flies through it without trying, he's going to have to redo it anyway.
As far as at school, there's nothing I can do there really. He gets not awesome grades on his multiplication tests because there are so many problems and he doesn't finish. I don't know if it's just him doing what he does at home. (stare into space instead of doing it, etc) or if he just doesn't have time.
It's a tough thing to deal with :\

boys have istep coming up and they are time limited. this is the year that if they don't pass istep they don't pass which is crap since both boys are on A B honor roll and are outstanding students. I really don't think that they wont pass. last year was their first year ever taking the test and even though reece didn't finish due to timing, they BOTH received high marks - almost into the advanced and Carter was in the advanced level in math, reece was 3 point below and in reading they were both within 10 points away from advanced.
reece is still the very last kid to turn in his tests every time. BUT he makes A's unless he is rushed. :shrug: whats wrong with letting them take their time? im a horrible test taker but that didn't mean I didn't know my stuff - unless I took my time.
we are working on staying focused now - just trying to come up with some creative ways to keep him interested in it. im sure he is tired of hearing me say "reece, focus" lol honestly im tired of saying it too. not that I will stop, but I feel bad for him. its one of thoses things that I wish they would just let him be. live and let live and let go.
im going to (eventually) hunt down some more ways to help. when I find something I ll post it in here for you all too.
