Help Please

My son didn't try very hard in 7th grade, and of course got bad grades, which led him to failing 3 subjects. We were given the option: Summer school for $400 for 1 of the subjects(math) or repeat 7th grade. So, we paid the money and for 5 weeks, woke up early every morning and went to school. He got a 79 the first grading period, and after that they stopped sending them. Finally, I get the thing and found out his final grade was a 63. Now, schedules are out, and it shows him in 7th grade. He was extremely upset that all his friends are moving on, and then next year when he goes to 8th grade, they're all going to the high school. And, when they graduate, he will be left behind. I feel really bad for him. What can I do? I know he can do much better, and he promised me he'd try this year. What are my options as a parent? He passed the rest of his classes, so he'd just be repeating the whole grade just to retake those few. I would like him to go to eighth grade. What are my options as a parent? I haven't talked to the school yet, but can I just say I don't want him held back? Please help

food obsession in my 7 year old

So I am am truly at a loss, at 3 years old my daughter's doctor told me she was over weight and they wanted me to attend their healthy weight clinic, as a child I struggled with being over weight and my daughter's father is also very heavy, so I have always been very health conscious with her. We attended this clinic for 2 years, during that time we learned about healthy eating, food to avoid, exercises the whole 9, and I followed it to a T, I even had a food journal for her, I had hoped we were creating healthy habits but instead it created an obsession, when she was 5 we stopped going to the clinic because nothing was changing with her weight, she continued to get taller but also gained weight with the height and I felt at that point the clinic was no longer helping us, well now she's 7 and food has become a full blown obsession, all the time she complains that she's hungry she eats every chance she gets sometimes hiding food from me, last year I found out she was eating 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches every single day and lying to her teacher about eating at home, I've spoken with her Dr and while they are concerned about her weight they have no idea why she is hungry all the time and tell me I need to regulate her better, but I don't know what to do any more if anyone has any advice I am all ears and very grateful

as for your question, talk to the school, see if they will let him play catch up in the 8 th grade, it would be a lot of work because he'd be doing the math of 7th and 8th together but if it means keeping up with his friends he might be willing to do it, I would also ask the school why they would stop sending him after only a week and then fail him anyway
