If your child told you...Mommy I promise I did do my best on this test and I know I did well.
Then the test comes with the grade and did not do very well.
What do you tell your kid I just said you must of not tried very hard to get a good grade then he says but mommy I did..(he looks very sincere) so maybe he did his very best but not good enough for the school.
I remember when I was in school I would feel the same way I always felt like I did my very best and when the grade came I did not do that good. Why is that?
Of course I did not tell him that...but what can I do to help him to feel good about hmself. It is a let down when u feel u do well and then nothing :(

Help him study for the next exam. Create flashcards and set aside a specific study time and go over his material each night. If he continues to do poorly after you know he has studied to the max, consult the teacher.
