Ugh - seems like the poor kid is taking more and more after is bio-dad all the time. That's gotta be frustrating as hell for both of you, especially because if I've read Boopie correctly over the years he's not failing because he's having trouble with the work or the subjects, he's probably failing because he's lazy and/or doesn't give a crap (actually a problem I had as well but not to this bad of a degree).
I wish I knew something to suggest to help - the "take away his stuff" strategy doesn't seem to be working at all (which might be another result of the "doesn't give a crap about anything" mentality) :/
You might want to consider stashing the money into an account or an investment of some sort that he can't touch for a few years - so it will still suck now, but maybe it'll still help him out sometime in the future.

you did the right thing. Next time he's bored he'll miss the PS2.

That boy is headed down a very scary path.

Seen this same thing happen to the juvilnile deliquents behind me, they have been arrested quite a few times and one of them we are betting will be spending time in prison one of these days.

That boy is need of some very serious help if he is going to straighten his life out, because it sounds like he will be repeating the same grade next year.

I wish I had something useful to say, too.

You did the right thing following through on your promise.
