We often say,parents are the first teacher of their children.if you are a teacher,your children's study score is not good enough.Do you think it's your failure? I don't think so.I think a useful person to our society needs many character ,Score is only a small part of it.what do you think about it?

Hi, zhouxi. In my point of view, parents should not only focus on the score. There are many parents who really focuses on the marks and give pressures on their children. This is not the right way. If we think that the score is not good enough, then we should find out why. Is it because of careless? or something else. After i have found the reason, then we need to do something to help the children. It is important that we should not scold the children because of the low marks. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

yes, I think so.score is necessary to get good score in the period of student. score is not every thing for child, but it's important!

I am not realy fond of the scoring and testing...people are all different and some people are just not good when put under pressure in tests...some people are very good at remembering what they read but when it comes to reality are no good...I was a very slow child and never even got the urge to learn until I was in my twenties, I simply was not ready to learn when I was at school...but to be honest I learnt more from my parents than I did from school..my parents taught me commonsense, and compassion.
