Making the grade..

Sometimes our kids take the lazy way out. Not because they are lazy but because they fear they cannot meet the expectations that are required of them to succeed. Especially if the pressure to succeed is mounted by threatening and negative words from parents. So, rather than focusing on the route that you fear they will fall into, inspire them, remind them how smart they are! Use your encouraging words and enthusiasm to bring out that brilliant kid that has lost his way in that mountain of schoolwork. Let them know Win or lose you are on their side! You love them so you want them to win! They will do better knowing that your love for them isn’t dependent on how good of a grade they get. Parenting is hard, being a kid with hard parents is even harder… Lets do this 🙂
