Dear Harlan: My high school junior has not been motivated. He has lied about getting his work done and is not working at the same level. He is usually an honors student.

When I ask him to do his work he tells me there is no point. His teachers are being as kind as possible. The problem is that I can’t get him to do his work or find the motivation to do it. What can I do to help him? — Stuck
