Help! My son is bored.

Dear Cathi,

I am so frustrated with my son. I could scream! He is very bright and perfectly capable of doing well in school. My wife and I put no pressure on him to get good grades, but we would like him to put in his best effort. Instead, he clowns around in class, rushes through his assignments, and then fails to turn in his homework assignments IF he does complete them. He complains constantly of being “bored.” My wife and I believe that the classes at school may not be stimulating enough for him. Because he’s bored, he misbehaves. What do you think?
