Middle Boy and I talked about missing homework AGAIN today.  Three times he has told me he is going to start to do better.

I asked him what I needed to start removing from his life so he would understand that this is serious.  Music?  All electronics?  What?

He said he has a plan.  I asked what it was.  His plan is this "get it done".  This plan does not work.

I explained that he has told me of this EXACT same plan three times and all three times it hasn't worked.  I asked what I can do to help.  I am told nothing.

He said this time I should believe him.  I told him that after three times of believing him I thought I would be a fool to believe that it is going to change.

He said "You'll be sorry when I prove you wrong."  My response "I hope you do."
