Right now we are reading a book called Cosmic where Liam is reading a book called Talk to Your Teen. Here is something that I would add to the book:
Parents, no matter what you think, your child is in no way perfect. No matter what you do they are not going it get straight A’s. When you keep telling your child to study more and and reread the textbook and all that, they are just going to want to ignore you. Just remember that at some point in their lives, they are going to fail a test and it is better now than when it really matters. Wen you get upset with them, they feel pressured to get better grades and it just makes them frustrated.
But if you are really concerned about your child’s grades, then maybe talk to them about a new study habits and techniques. Some people have trouble understanding the material by just reading the textbook. If they love exercising, then maybe have them jump rope while you quiz them on vocabulary. If they are having trouble with math, then print some worksheets off of the computer and pretend like it is a practice test. These are some ways that you could become a better parent, and help your child too.
Hahaha I wish my parents would get off my back about grades!!!
That is great advice, smart thinking about the study habits and technics! Yes, I do too!! @19Anna
