In brief: Have a talk

Find out what is going on.
Is it a 1 time thing or is it chronic? Have his/her grades gone down? Is he/she having difficulties with friends or bullies. Have a talk and teach problem solving and good decision making in the process. If it is more serious make an appointment with the school counselor.
