I don't get it Christy with these kids don't they know that if an educated person can't find work what in the world will they do without an education I keep telling my son he had better have a plan B

My son just turned 16, at our meeting tonight his teacher showed me how to get online and see what assignments they have due and when they are going to have test, he has everything listed online for his class... I was amazed because if I say to my son you have this assignment missing he would tell me he dont know what it is when all along it was on there and the teacher has been telling them to tell their parents about this... its so frustrating.

On the other hand my daughters teachers have nothing but good things to say about her, they are very pleased with her and her work.

My daughter has all a's & b's she is in 7th grade and she was devastated with her grades she wants to have all A's. My son on the other hand is in 10th grade and his grades are horrible because he just does not do his work he has more missing assignments than ones that he has turned in. I have meeting with both of their teachers tonight.

Oh don't I know the feeling about that one is doing okay while one is doing just horrible I'm sick of it....I've taken away everything I could think to take away we do private tutoring which is costing me a fortune and he just don't get it....but my response to him is that I hope he has a plan B because once he gets through school if he does....He certainly wont be with me forever what will he do....He can't think that far ahead

I'm lucky and all four or our kids get good grades. Both high school girls had one C a piece, but they assured me that it will be up by semester.

The middle school boy had all A's and B's, but again he could do a bit better. He's one that could do better with some added effort.

The 6th grade boy also had all A's and B's.

My husband and I weren't great in school, not bad, but not great either. We always stressed doing your best. If they are getting a C, but it's there best and we see the effort, then we fine with that. All we want is for the kids to put forth their best.
