Ok so my dd is 5. We had her first parent teachers conference today and found out that she is basically getting all "C's". The problem is that I KNOW my kid better than anyone else and I KNOW that she understands the material but, for some reason is not trying in class. To me that is unacceptable. I expect A's and B's. Nothing lower. I told my dd that she is doing ok in class but, that she needs to try harder and that we are going to start working on practicing her reading and writing a little more everyday at home. So am i totally wrong for setting an expectation that my dd does good in school? I don't understand why that makes me so bad? I am not expecting that she does it all on her own or anything. If she is having trouble we will help her. We will do whatever needs to be done. I am not one of those crazy parents that is going to freak out over an A- or anything but, I feel like Parents who set higher expectations usually see their children rise to their level of expectation. So setting the standards high but ACHIEVABLE LEVELS will cause children to step up and do it. So how wrong am i?Answer Question
