Q:

I read your response to the parent of the unmotivated child and saw the two books that you recommended. I'd like to suggest a third excellent title, "The Myth of Laziness," by Dr. Mel Levine. It looks at the many different reasons why children, and also adults, fail to be productive. - More Information

A:

Along with the two books we mentioned ("The Unmotivated Child," by Natalie Rathvon, and "Bright Minds, Poor Grades," by Michael D. Whitley), "The Myth of Laziness" can be helpful for the parents of an unmotivated child. You can also visit Dr. Levine's Web site at www.allkindsofminds.org for more information.
