He is 8 yrs. old and in the 3rd grade he is a smart boy but like almost any other kid his age they are just not interested that much in school. We tell him to atleast bring home B's and C's instead he brings home more D's and one C I tell him that was good the last report card day but this time the same thing what I mean't to him was don't settle for a D even though you can pass but go above a D..He's like "As long as I am passing what is the big deal"? Yes you are barely passing but I want you to do better you are smarter than that than to just settle with a D as you get older it will get harder.
I don't know what else to do with him as far as studying I don't know everything that they actually do in the classroom..I don't want him to repeat this grade :(
Thanks Ladies for listening...
