It’s that time of year again. School is right around the corner. Most of us are scrabbling to pick up the last few items on our little ones’ goodies for school. The question that’s most oftened asked is, how can my child be better organized to get awesome grades this school year? I think being organized helps with life period and grades will improve from it; nonetheless, the older I get, the less stock in place on grades as a whole. I know it’s true that one needs a certain GPA to obtain certain priveleges; nonetheless, I think the most important thing is a child work ethic… If your child isn’t being challenged and is able to coast by with all “A”s; that may hinder them in the longrun. The true test is how she/he will overcome a challenging course. Trust me, I love to see all “A”s on my child report card; nonetheless, the most important thing to me is the effort they put behind it.
After school ends, real life sets in. No longer will your grades be able to tell you how much you will earn or eat for that matter. It will come down to your ability to work with people and overcome adversity. There are plenty “C” students who are CEOs and plenty “A” students working for them. As I stated before, I love good grades; nevertheless, I love effort more. To have both is the best of both worlds. If I had to choose one over the other, it would definetly be effort…
How much stock do you put into grades? Do you prefer grades over effort?
I would love to hear your answer!!!!
