I have 5 children, all with 5 different learning styles and abilities.
2 of them are quick learners, school is easy for them, so when they get a C on their report cards I get on their case. Because I know that they 'can' do better, but choose to be lazy and don't.
I also have a child who has struggled since Pre-K. He is now in 6th grade and spends hours studying and doing homework. For him a C is great. One of my 'smarter' ones got a D on his last report card and I took his x-box away until he brings it up, while my struggler got a D and I didn't do anything, but reward him for his 2 B's. Does anyone else have multiple kids in school? How do you balance what you expect out of them. My oldest got an D, and he is one of the 'smarter' ones. I was so mad at him, but my husband said I overreacted. He is in 9th grade and the class he got the D in was 11th grade geography. But it was due to incomplete homework.
