In almost every schools or colleges, you came across many students or freinds whose grades are really poor.But my observation about these guys is that they are really intelligent in some part of the subjects sometimes more intelligent than the toppers...But students are being judged by their grades...after all, all the genius people that we know today r never a good graded student in their life???What do you think guys??/

My daughter has poor grades and thinks hurts my heart. She is a very smart child and the school knows this as well as I do. She is not boook smart and can't remember the work taught in class once she leaves. We are working very hard to help her with this. I think you have a point here.

That is so true, grades are what they based to if the student is intelligent or not. Well, it is not , right? I agree with you, genus people today are not even at the top of the class and in fact, some of the rich billionaires today are college dropouts! :)

Hi mohondang ;D You are right with that. There can be many reasons why a student fails the class. It does not necessarily depend on his level of intelligence. I believe there are other important factors than this. It could be his/her social environment he is not comfortable with, it could also be his teacher who can not deliver the subject matter successfully, it could also be that he's just not interested with the subject and some other factors. I believe the most important thing is that the parents should understand what could be the reason behind the student's poor grades. Sometimes it could also be the student's problem, while there are also times it could be on other external factors like what I've mentioned. As parents too I think it's important that we should not set high expectations on the children. The world does not end in school. There's real life out there. Though I know the importance of having better grades myself, I think the most important thing is the real life experiences and we can learn so much from them than what the school teaches.
