I feel for you OP. It's so hard to see our kids go through things like this when we know they are capable of so much more.

The truth is you can want it for them all you want. You can punish them all you want. But keep in mind your goal here is not good grades. Your goal here is to get your child to WANT good grades. You need to flip on that little switch deep in their mind so that they become driven to get the grades and excel at what they do. Not an easy task in some cases.

Since she says she's OK with working a menial job the rest of her life, maybe you need to find a way to let her get a taste of that somehow. I know she's only 15 so maybe too young for a job of her own, but maybe you can find someone to send her to work with? Or another way to help her truly understand what she is in for.
