Kids and High Grades
I was asking for some information regarding tutorial services, and she understandably thought I was concerned about high grades. In the Philippines, it seems that parents not-so-secretly wish their children would graduate with honors. But is it really worth it?[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Look around you. Aren't yesterday's "lazy" but street-smart students the successful entrepreneurs of today? And aren't the students with high grades (not all, but quite a few) now the efficient employees hired by their "carefree" classmates? Do you know of a relative who got stellar grades from elementary to high school, who ended up freaking out in college?
I know, I know. You'll always find honor graduates running their own businesses, and bulakbols who didn't amount to anything. But try this: Ask your children if they think high grades are important.
Chances are, they'll quickly say YES. Follow this up with WHY. Their answer might surprise you. I thought Adi would say: "Because you're happy when I get good grades." I didn't expect his: "I don't know."
(Nope, I'm not getting Adi a tutor. And neither will I "motivate" him to reach his potential with the famous: "What?? You only scored 99??")
