Is your kid average?
I’ll bet that none of you out there think that your child is average. I am certain that’s not what my parents thought of me either. But, by accepting grades that are less than your child’s full potential, you are sending them a message. That message is that you don’t have to try your best… that its okay to just go through the motions… and that just being good enough is good enough for me.
Being good enough is not good enough!
Yup, you heard right. Being good enough is not good enough when you know that your child can do better. When your children get their report cards I implore you to pay less attention to your child’s grades and look more closely at your child’s habits. Can you honestly say that your child has tried their very best? Even more important… can your child say that?
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it, you will land among the stars. ~Les Brown
That quote resonates exactly what we need to do as parents… to help our children not only be successful in school, but to also be a success in life. Raise the bar where your child is concerned. If that means he/she needs to study more, then that’s what needs to be done. Whatever your child needs to be successful, you need do your best to facilitate this because…
No child is an average child
We must expect more from our children. If we don’t then no one else will…. not even them.
