I'm not a parent yet, soon, but not yet- but trust me, this is never the answer. If you bruise him and he goes to school, they will blame his failing on his "unsafe home environment". You sound like a good guy, don't let that happen to you. Sit him down and talk to him. Is he just being lazy? Did his hormones kick in early and he's being spacey because of some girls? Find out some info. Never go for the belt unless he hits you or your wife or does something unforgivable. I know it's unfortunate that he failed, but a lot of kids do. We've all gotten into our fair share of trouble. Try and talk through it.

Let us know how it goes.
