Proactive Parenting: Grades

Social Butterfly Presents: Proactive Parenting


Proactive: Acting in advance to deal with an expected difficulty; anticipatory...

Parenting: The rearing of a child or children, especially the care, love, and guidance given by a parent.

Grades


Does your child know what grades he/she is expected to make? I think it is very helpful to tell your child what is acceptable, repeatedly. I have been blessed with really smart kids, however, the blessing falls short because my smart kids don't always make bring home smart school grades. When it comes to school; you will have children that are smart and make good grades everytime, smart and doesn't always make good grades because they have a very different agenda (mine), average B-C student, and students who struggle to grasp what is going on. I am sure these types can be broken down further, but I am sure you understand where I am going. So with that said, I have to sometimes push my children up, when they are falling down. I don't mind it, but it can be frustrating sometimes when I get that progress report and I see C average in some of those classes. They know I will be mad, so why don't they prevent that grade before hand, I don't know.

So, my question to you is, :Does your children know what is expected of them when it comes to their education?" Please share your expectations, I might want to adopt it. LOL

Some people really feel that the US school system is failing because of the parents. As stated in a previous post, I disagree; however we can continue to be proactive parents and help our children be the best they can be.

Till Next Time......
