How old is your son? I think scolding a child for poor exam result is not the best way to motivate a child. Children need pacifying words so he can do better in future. The learning progress of each child differs. He may be a slow learner but would pick up pretty fast once he is in higher standard n school. But you should keep monitering and encouraging him so he would strive harder in class.

Indah, don't worry too much. Every problem sure have a way to solve it. Since it is still midterm, you still have time to guide him to study better. Why don't you find someone who able to guide him to understand his studies better? Hope in the final term, he will get much better result. By the way, he is in what level at this moment? Good luck to your son...

Sorry to hear that. My brothers also do get lower grades even failing grades and my dad always scold them. But, they never cry maybe because they are know that scolding is only a way of showing that my father cares for them and their future. I understand your husband and I'm sure he knows what he is doing. Just try to be the good mother and let your son understand that what your husband is doing is for his own good.

When my children were showing they were having a hard time with school learning I felt that I was also failing them. So I came up with something that in time helped and my children all started having better attitude and grades. What I did was made sure that when they came home from school, they would get a nice good snack, not chips n dip, instead a jello or apple or something like that. After that then it was time to sit at the kitchen table for a minimum of one hour to go over what they did at school. Do homework that was assigned. If needed study for test together. One thing they had to learn was that I was not going to give them the answers. I would help direct them in how to find them, still they had to find them or figure out what it was. I did this with them everyday.. didn't matter it was like apart of the school schedule for everyone. I believe it helped them and me as well for I got to learn what they were doing and how I was able to help them learn what was being taught...
