As an intermittent homeschool family, (my daughter has experienced homeschool, Public and starting next year private), Talking about it helps me to help her take charge of her grades (what area does she need a bit more help with, Did she really try her best or did she have a major test on a day where she wasn’t feeling all that great. Most of this discussion should be taking place before progress reports / report cards come out. We also discuss the comments section as well as the actual grades.
Students should talk about their classes before they get their report cards. They should talk to their parents about what classes are more challenging than others. This will let parents know what to expect from each class. If students are trying their best, shouldn't that be the most important thing?
Students should talk to their parents about their classes before they get their report cards. They should talk about their perspective, and what classes are more challenging than others. Parents then understand what to expect from each class. If students are trying their best, shouldn't that be the most important thing?
While there are some rare cases where parents have unreasonably negative reactions to bad report cards, most students should definitely have an open dialogue with their parents about report cards. When the parents are involved, the students have a support system that can help them succeed even when they are struggling.
I do believe students should talk to their parents regarding their report cards, every single quarter of the year that teachers give out the report cards. Parents should be fully aware of how exactly how their children are doing in school to ensure if the young students need any help.
Students should talk to parents about their report cards. They should look at them together and talk about any questions or issues they have. Parents need to know how their children are progressing, and how they feel about what's happening with their grades. College is a bit of an exception, since there should be more independence, but it would still be good for students to check in with their parents about their progress.
Parents have every right to know how their children are doing in school, in order for them to have an idea of how the student is progressing they need to see all the reports, including the report card. If the parent and student never talk about the report card then the parent can't help the student if needed or praise the student when needed either.
Yes students should talk to their parents about their report cards because this is a way for the parents to see where there child is either struggling or just being lazy in certain classes. If they don't share where they are struggling than the parents don't know how to help the student.
