What To Do if Your Child’s Grades Are Slipping

Video taken from the channel: CT STYLE


Don’t rush in and try to fix things for them, even if you are footing the bill and they are at risk of failing. Instead, step back and encourage them to take control of the situation. Here are some additional ways you can address the situation while still encouraging your student to take the reins.

Sometimes you find yourself puzzled about why your grades are the way they are, and even more confused about how to fix things before it’s too late. Here’s a list of 4 items to help get you back on the right track: Take stock of the situation. You can’t fix anything until you know what it is that needs to be fixed. If, for example, your child was a straight A student in high school, you may perceive a B as a bad grade. And, no matter how you would define a grade that’s slipping, step one is to talk to your child.

You can start by asking them how the experience has been and see if your child has insights to offer. Examples of answers you might get includ. Your high school grades are supposed to pave the road to your academic excellence in college. They don’t always do however. They don’t always do however.

Many straight “A” high school students drop out of college due to “grade shock” or what sociologist Samuel Stouffer calls “relative deprivation”. If this is something that has affected you, one thing you can do is buy college notes online, which will make it easier for you to catch up on information from any classes you may have missed. If grades still don’t improve, talk to your child’s teacher and school.

Perhaps extra supports are appropriate such as intervention tutoring. Also, reflect on whether there may be outside obstacles. It may be difficult for your child to focus in class due to distraction. Anything from sitting by a cute boy to being worried about the mid-year PCS can cause grades to slip. Talk to your child about what might be distracting them, and help brainstorm ways they can redirect their focus when it wanders.

Of course, if you see your grades slipping, they by no means have to stay that way. Schools, teachers, and counselors are all doing what they can to help students during this time, so if you feel that you need some extra assistance to make it through virtual learning, be sure to reach out to them. What Juniors and Underclassmen Should Do.

How to do that: 0) Forgive yourself for the grades you already have, and just focus on doing better from here on out. You made As your first two years. I know you can do well, you’re just stuck in a rut right now. Don’t start beating yourself up or saying you’re a failure or any of that nonsense. You’re still the same person you were before.

1) Skim your class notes when you get home. You may be amazed how much more information you retain, 2) Consider looking for more organized note taking systems. a lot of people love the Cornell system. http://coe.jmu.edu/learningtoolbox/cornellnotes.html. 3) Carefully review your grades and comments on assignments.

First, if you send your child to a state university when he could have attended a more selective college and are worried that his credentials won’t signal his intelligence, putting the honors program on the résumé can help alleviate this problem.

When the scores arrive, show your child how his or her scores compare to college-bound high school seniors (noted in the report that gets mailed to the student), and explain that your child can expect even higher scores the next year when the exam is taken again.

  • “Maybe I should drop out of university and hang myself” It’s scary that something like that occurs often in the world we live in. Killing themselves over a failing grade/class seems like an overreaction to some, but so scary that you’ll never know if they’re being serious or not. It’s also scary how I sometimes tell myself that and I don’t know if it’ll happen eventually once I lose control of my mind.

  • I was always the best at math, then I went to the best secondary school in my country and the first three notes I got were Fs. I cried like a baby ��

  • This was great, I been tryin to find out about “how to bring up a grade” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Yeetta Gradeify Scores (search on google )? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my brother in law got great results with it.

  • This was great, I been tryin to find out about “tips for getting better grades” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Yeetta Gradeify Scores (search on google )? Ive heard some decent things about it and my mate got amazing success with it.

  • Would you be interested in permanently upgrading your grades with 0 stress and troubles?

    You can have your grades changed without getting caught.

  • It’s my second year at college and with my heart enlargement concern, it is exhausting. Sometimes I look at young healthy people and wish I had their health. I can be out of breathe and fatigue for just sitting in class or walking up stairs. You can have all the motivation in the world, but health issues really limit you. If anyone has any similar issues, I would love to hear how you getting through this.

  • High school is so much easier than college. I got straight As in high school while playing basketball. My parents did encourage me which helped. College though… it’s much more difficult. It’s funny because in high school I struggled with math and now I’m studying civil engineering��

  • this helps with motivation, but i study all day when i get home from school for weeks before tests and quizzes but then i always get horrible grades..

  • Honestly, first essays are just a base. It’s okay to take risks at the start because you’ll know what works and what doesn’t as a result of it. If you don’t do brilliantly on the first one, it makes you want to do better on the next, and grow. Never put yourself down, failure isn’t a thing, it’s a mistake that you learn and grow from. I hope you’re doing good now ❤️

  • this video just made me sadder because i am the person who has a test tomorrow and is just now trying to study but is freaking out and now watching this video��

  • I finished school at 3pm, went to work and got out at 6, spent the next 5 house catching up on my IB classes, its 11pm and I still have to study for a math and literature quiz on 8 chapters of a book I didn’t have time to read and math I don’t get at all. I’m not sure if I’ll have time to get ready the quizzes tomorrow. I’m going to wake up at 6:30am tomorrow to do as much as I can. Hopefully I’ll do well.

  • Smart I got a 4.0 all year but I HATE school it’s the worst thing ever. anxiety, you don’t learn about money. All about passing with a good grades not evn knowing the stuff.

  • Not to motion if you’re mentally challenged they put you in SPED class which makes those students feels stupid and compared to the normal kids. And makes them feel more worthless. They should actually help instead of embarrass them and putting them in classes they don’t want to do.

  • Today I got C in maths, and i dont know how to explain this to my parents, i had planned A-s in every subject but this C is going to ruin everything, my parents are going to be angry too, im so sad:_(

  • My sister and brothers all have jobs and I don’t. I’m still in college and I want to learn and get good grades because I need the knowledge so I can do well in life. Given the state of the world right now, a financially safe future is not guaranteed for me. I wish I could take it easy as they do.

  • i messed up. i seriously messed everything up. everything would’ve been okay if i didn’t procrastinate. if you’re reading this. get up. and do that shit rn.

  • Almost a month in Online class I’m already giving in, I don’t even know if im learning anything or am I just filling in blank spaces. I am already depressed and I already have anxiety but online class is giving me pressure and making my depression and anxiety any more worse than before. I want to hurt my self, I want to cut my self again….just to relieve my stress, but there’s always this one dude who always tells me “Don’t, don’t hurt yourself. You know I have alot of friends who been there, you don’t have to hurt your self to relieve your stress” I want to share that with you guys he’s an Idol and some of you might not like him or his kind but, they helped alot these days. These days where you just feel lost and can’t seem to find the path you were in, where you can’t find yourself. I am thankful that KPOP music reached my News feed 5 years ago. I am happy they lifted me from this cruel dark shadow. Your not alone in life and I want to tell you that I am here for you. I can help you cause I’ve been there more than i could even remember.�� I want to pay my idols back by helping others out��. Your not alone and you never are��������{edit: you were never alone in this world!!!!��}

  • My parents are really not helping, whenever I get bad grades all I get is insults upon insults, what’s the point in trying to make them happy??

  • How is it hard? You’re told what to do, how to do it. The only things I can see interfering are work, problems at home, problems with yourself(like depression). I have read and watched documentaries about American education system, and yeah that’s a big problem, but one thing that I want to know more about is how people in school think while learning something new in school, how they’re thinking when studying, how they think when asked a question in class, how they think during a test, and how they think when asked a real hard question. I have been witness to those things and I can see the confusion in people’s faces and then when they gave an answer or something, I always thought they were stupid and even lacked common sense when they got something so easy wrong. Anyways, I think people need to find better study habits. I think that is important as well and also why people just fail even when they study so hard. They’re trying to memorize so many things at once, not even taking breaks.

  • You life isn’t planned out for you… Your life is not ruined over one small thing don’t let a mess up or a person put you down because your stronger then you think! Fight! I need you.. we need you the world needs you! So, get out there and do your best!
    Your Friend-

  • Me: watches this video Okay now I feel guilty. I won’t procrastinate in anything from now. Nothing.

    Also me: wants to get the remote control for the TV that’s on the other side of my couch I’ll get that later.

  • It’s ok to fail because “FAIL” just stand for your first attempt in learning. So dont give up just because you got a 60 or a F. life always gives you chances to pass. Giving up is just a way to get out your problems.

  • I got an f today for English i was so sad and lost and then I thought was I actually doing the work wss i trying my best did i even succeed the part that said “you cant change youre grades in the past but you can make better grades in the future” that fot me i really need to foucus more on my studies thanks so much this vid helped a lot

  • getting good grades in university is NP-hard. Can you find a polynomial time reduction from 3SAT? LOL. If P=NP, then everyone will find university a piece of cake.

  • My summer English booklet is due in 2 days and I haven’t even started it yet �� I think this is what I needed to hear. I’m gonna get my lazy self up and get to bed so I can get to it tomorrow. Use this as a sign that you should too. Go on you read that right. GET THE FUCK UP TO.

  • I used to get 65,45,70 always in mathematics but one day in my next math paper i said no today iam getting a higher mark and i got 85 i was very happy because you know math is not easy

  • If they were really intelligent they would know there are different kinds of intelligence that your grades can’t reflect. -Straight A-Student
