blasting your childs business on facebook............

Do you think it right to praise one child for making good grades and post a pic of their report card, but in the very same breath tell all of facebook that another child got all Ds and you pissed.

maybe this is just me, but I thought this was very wrong of this father to do this. So the kid that got all As, they got 45 likes on the fathers comment and the kid that got all Ds got comments that even hurt my feelings a little. why do parents post this stuff about their children? I get it you want your kids to do better in school but blasting their bad grades is just fucked up. maybe he did not want everyone to know he was falling behind.

Do you pressure your kids to come home with ALL A's and B's?  is it really that serious that all grades be merit and honor roll worthy. I mean really how many people got hired for a job because they made merit or honor in high school.

just my rant for the day.

That's wrong, as long as my dd does her best in school I'll be happy. Of course she is only one so we've got a ways to go before school.

I will expect a & b from DS, but I would not have done what that father did. I think that is wrong & childish. If ds doesn't get honor roll & is trying his best he won't be punished. We will work with him & see where the problem is.

No, I think everyone should SHUT UP about any personal business that would embarrass someone else. 

My kids DO get all A's, but I never mention it, or them!   I did once say that I wish "my son" (that's as specific as I ever get - no names, etc) hadn't told me about this one free app because I was playing with it all the time.   Oh, yes...and I posted that "my family" (unidentifiable in their heavy coats/hats,etc) were wearing each other out in the snow.

You just don't EVER post anything too personal or hurtful/embarrassing to another.  Ever.

Ha.  Yes, you've got awhile.

I think parents get angry when they know that their own kid didn't do his best.  We all know our kids' capabilities.  If the best you can do is a C, so be it.  But when you know your kid is highly academic and is goofing around, you do get annoyed.  But keep it off Facebook!  That's face-to-face stuff.

How sad!  I think it's ok to celebrate and brag about a kid's good grades. But never ok to broadcast to the world if they get bad grades.

I agree, things are difficult for some and not others. If your kid is just goofing off it should be addressed, but not on facebook. That's a matter between the student, parent, and teacher.
