Poor Grades
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

We love to see our children perform and progress well in school. Many people spend their last dollar to see their children excell in school. This gives real joy and a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. However, many of us become disappointed,, worried, embarassed, and confused when our children are performing at average and below average in their school work. What we need to consider carefully is that poor grades on school report cards may have various causes.

Each child has their special modality of learning. Some children learn best by visualizing or seeing their work. Others learn easily by listening to the teacher's lecture; while some learn by doing or the kinesthetic method.. Each person who gives instruction should know each child's method of learning, and implement this method with the individual child, even though for a particular child a combination of modalities might be necessary. The instructor's methodology must be sound, This certainly would help to improve the grades of the children, especially if they have that inner motivation to do well.

The home enviroment also plays a key role in students grades. Children do better in a home where parental relationship is stable, loving and friendly. They need to know that they are loved, cared for, and protected. It is difficult for children to study in a home where there are constant family problems. Children who are left unsupervised spend much time at television, computers and games and rod themselves of adequate sleep. Their homework and study are never properly done. As a result of this, their grades will be poor and their school work will suffer.

A vigilant parent must also find out if their child has any physical impediment that would hinder their learning. Regular checks by a physician are helpful to ascertain whether or not there is seeing or has a hearing problem or perhaps a speech defect as sometimes the child has to answer oral test questions.

There should be good parent- teacher child relationship where regular one to one parent- teacher child meeting should be held. This is so important as it allows the parents to be more involved; while finding out the strengths and weaknesses of their child. Parents would be more informed as to the strategies which can be implemented for better performance of their child in school.

Irregularity, tardiness, and poor discipline are also contributary factors to the poor grades in school Teachers are human and can become intimidated by unacceptable behaviour of a child who constantly disrupts class and makes learning impossible for the other members of the class. The bullying has immense psychological effect on most children. They become scared of school and this prevents them from performing well.

Finally, my belief is that a reward that is given to a child for good work is a strong extrinsic motivation to get a child to lift his perfomance higher. I shall emphasize here the importance of the mastery of reading and understanding in maintaining good grades, and the reduction of long vacations away from school
