Getting the message through. Not!!

Parent /teacher interviews again today, feels like it was only last month when I last caught up with the kids teachers and blogged about it. 

Fortunately Harry’s report and teachers feedback was excellent. Unfortunately George’s report was not so great, but the feedback from the teachers was definitely not as disheartening as I was expecting. Madelyn’s report and parent/teacher interviews are yet to come. 
I have really struggled with getting the message of how important school really is, across to George. I don’t know how else to say it or what else to do to get through to him.  

I know he is disappointed with his grades as much as we are, and at the moment he is really committed to trying harder to improve his marks but I can’t help thinking that this newly found commitment on his part is not going to last, and that worries me so much.

Tonight I will take solace in the fact that after speaking with the teachers it doesn’t look as bad for him as what the report suggested.

  1. Well done to both boys πŸ™‚ it’s hard isn’t it? At their age it’s difficult to understand the importance of school and education. I do try to explain that to Ben in his terms xx

  2. No cookie cutter simple answers for finding the right motivation for each child to put forth their best efforts. Sending positive thoughts and wishes for success, and a prayer or three. I remember those days, youngest ones just turned 32, oldest is, well, Oldest. α•™(πŸ’“β–ΏπŸ’“)α•—

      1. Hopefully my Grands aren’t quite so Unique as their Parents, or they have sooooooooooo many surprises in store for them. Mom told me early in life that Unique and Different became real clear after I was born, it took me a while to decipher if that was a compliment, insult or just a statement of face. Later I understood it much much clearer. She said after me, all my Sisters were easy bc she’d already found out thousands of plans that didn’t work at all.
