Sometimes we really need to hear our children. Have your children ever come home with a bad grade on a test and told you “everybody in my class did bad”? Unfortunately this can sometimes be true. I have a group of 8th graders being tutored now for math. They are all in the same class. They complain that their teacher does not explain very well so they were all struggling with poor test scores and not learning what they will need for math class next school year. These students are lucky – their parents believed them and call us for help. Don’t just accept poor grades get help and believe your children, they just might be right.
