Sometime ago, I blogged about receiving a doom and gloom email from my son’s maths teacher..
Here is the term report.. Of course he didn’t get a 7 for maths.. But in the grand scheme of things, does it really matter?
If you look at his report, he actually got really good grades and I really don’t care that he didn’t get 7 for all subjects.. How I wish his teachers would stop fretting about perfect 7’s and actually take a moment to see that he is a really happy child, determined to do well and is not a robot.. Sometimes you get a score that is not perfect.. But the sky won’t fall.. It never did, it never will..
I have been doing lots of chatting on Whatsapp? I was looking for the ‘thumbs up” icon!
This is excellent!! Good attitude on your end!!
MS: My classmates(from India as well as here) are pretty upset with me that I won’t give them my mobile number.. or participate in WhatsApp group chats.. I just can’t deal with WhatsApp..
Huh, why are the teachers all so concerend that he didn’t get a “7” in all subjects? I agree, if the grades are sufficient and he’s happy let it be. It won’t break him.
J1206: My son attends the top academic school in Brisbane.. And the school expects top results from the kids. I, as a parent don’t care about perfect scores and they can’t understand why I don’t care..
