Last Friday was my son's issuance of report card for the second quarter. My son is in grade one and he is just six years old. One of the youngest student in his grade. I am not expecting anything from my son as I know he is trying hard to learn and study his lessons. Sometimes, he loses focus because he wants to play all the time. But I am so proud of him because all of his grades went up. The grades are not that high but I am so proud of him because he shows improvement in school. Even the teachers are happy with the way he is improving. There are still things to focus on like writing and reading but I know in time he would do better. how about you, what's is your child's latest accomplishment that makes you so proud? Thanks in advance and have fun mylotting.

That is great to hear. You must feel on top of the world knowing that your son improves his grades. Being six, he probably loves playing more than studying and it should make you so proud that he can perform so well in school. He would definitely do better in future if he sees that his accomplishments at school makes you so happy. Children like to please their parents, you know so I won't be too worried about other school subjects. He would study harder I think if only to see your happy face when he did better the next time.

My 7 year old daughter has got her report card just last month. Her grades are consistent but her teacher is full of praise for her in her maturity and responsibility. I am so proud of her that she has behaved so well in school. Not so at home though. But she is improving herself in that area also so I am happy.

Children sometimes behave differently in the company of others and when they're home and comfortable, they will behave in another way. I think they take their cue from how adults behave when in the company of others. If we're very polite while we're with other people outside the home, they would also copy our behavior but if we're always rude to others, that is also how they would behave when they're with other people. Children are the best copycat.

I know this probably sounds crazy but turmoil between me and my son has been present for about 2 years now. It is not because of my son but his father asking him to say and do things. As a reward for these things my son gets acceptance from his dad. Deer hunting is a big part of my ex's life and my sons. I had not talked to my son for probably 3 months but when he killed that 8 pt buck last week the first person he wanted to call was his mommy. It made me so proud and it just goes to show a good mother always has some sort of bond with their children no matter what. Just to say the killing of deer is not just for sport but is also processed and eaten. I do not accept people that hunt and waste the meat just for sport. To many charities out there that would take the meat if it is sport to you.

That calls for a celebration! Well, I entered grade one when I was 6 years old too. My teacher won't accept me at that time because they require a 7 year old child to be in the first grade but thanks to my mother she was able to convince my adviser to accept me. I like competition. It moves me. That time, I and my cousin were classmates and she was a year older than me. Thinking that I should surpass her because I want to be praised with our relatives too, I made good at school. Although I was not the first honor, my cousin was. I just placed fourth. But despite that, I was proud of myself because I was able to make my father go on the stage to pin my ribbon. And I know he was proud of me.

Good for u :) That's what most mom wants to see in their child, doing well in school, having improvements in their grades By encouraging your son, u are motivating him to do even better, because u don't have too high expectations for him U ought to be proud since he's only that young and his learning ability has surpassed some of his older peers ^^ Keep up the good work there ^^

Congrats on your kids grades going up. Grades going up are always a good thing, even if its not really good grades at the moment. I was a great student (except for hand writing, but in my defense, my teacher couldn't even read her own hand writing) until I hit high school then I decided I wasn't going to play the way I was supposed to. I was a severe under achiever. I miss recess and playing around. lol. Too bad they don't grade it, I'd have been an A+ student.

That is so good to be proud of your son like that. My son is also in first grade and it amazes me the pressures that children have these days on what they have to learn at such a young age. For my kids it doesn't matter if they get the best grades, as long as they try and do the best they can. That is what makes me proud.

Our son is about the same age. My son just turned 7 yesterday and he's in the 1st grade also. The latest achievement he had that I'm very proud of would be his teacher's current assessment of his behavior in school. Back in the school's first quarter, his teacher said that while he is such a good boy sometimes he is so talkative that he and his classmates loses their focus on school activities (seat works / quizzes). His teacher told me that my son's personality improved a lot, he would not bother his classmates during school activities (seat works / quizzes) when he is done answering, instead he would get the broom and sweep the whole classroom. Teacher is laughing while she's telling me the story, sometimes my son would simply ask the teacher for something to read while he is waiting for his classmates to finish. He only plays with his classmates during recess and when teacher gives them a go signal to play. I'm so proud that he is learning to be disciplined when I am not around. =)

I think that's awesome that he went right from primary to grade one, you have every reason to be proud of him. The harder work in grade one will help stimulate his brain and improve his intellect. Congrats to him and also to his happy parents!
