Underachievement and Lack of Motivation

Back to Childhood Problems

In today’s competitive environment motivation and a desire to do well are critical. Many parents are concerned that their child or teenager is not working up to his or her potential. These children and adolescents often:

  • Fail to bring home, complete, and turn in homework.
  • Fail to study for tests.
  • Fail to adequately organize and prepare for large projects.
  • Fail to approach school in a motivated diligent fashion.
  • Fail (seemingly) to grasp the importance of school for their future.

Therapy can often help these children, adolescents, and young adults become more responsible and serious about their approach to school and school work. At the Centers for Family Change we work with you and your child to help:

  • Understand the causes for their poor motivation and lack of effort.
  • Develop strategies to help motivate your child.
  • Prevent and eliminate conflicts about school work.
