Do your parents set requirement on your scores?

Yesterday, I saw on TV program about pupil schooling. The parents do not force for 100 from their child, but require scores above 90. I think it is a good orientation. What do you think?

What my family did was reward me for a good grade so I'll be more eager to do well in school. In high school, my grandfather used to give me ten dollars for every A I have on my report grade. I think that improved my grades.

My parents never set requirement on my scores. My marks are something I have to deal with.. I will work and I will get benefit, not them. But I always bring good marks so they didn't have to say me that my marks are low and I have to bring better.. On the other hand, my brother was not so good.. They were telling him that he need to work harder e.t.c... I think above 90 is good as score, but it need much work to get.. Parents should help their childern to get better marks and not only asking better marks..!

I remember when I was in school, my parents didn't require me to get a certain score. They didn't give me amy pressure on study and I did quite well, remained top 5 in class all the time.

Since I was yong,my parents pay little attention to my study and scores.Because they thought I can deal with my own matters.As for me,I won't make them worried about me. Besides,in my eyes the mark is not most important for me.If I make efforts on my study,I will not focus on the result of the performance.Because I have try my best to it. My parents also believe me to control myself.So I am very happy to get their trustness.

A a student, that idea kinda gives me a pressure.it is a standard that is being set by the parents that the children may or may not reach. that also can give a 2 possible outcome.for one,that can be a driving force to a child who wants to impress his/her parents. and the other is that,the child might not reach that standard because of the feeling of too much pressure. the child might be filled with anxiety every time he/she has exams or a graded activity is ongoing. but this one depends on how does the parents explain this thing to their child.

Nope. My parents did not set any grade requirements and I think it worked because knowing that you have a grade to maintain will only give you pressure does focusing on understanding the subject will not be done.

Good point. Pressure will harm the learning and memorizing portion of our brains.

no, they are very good to me even though my score under one hundred they only give advice to learn more actively. it seemed to work, and little by little that was bad to be good. Finally, I really like learning and enhance knowledge.
