Tips to Help Parents Deal With Report Cards

Report cards and progress reports can be daunting for both parents and students. Ideally, your child's grades shouldn't be a surprise to your or your child, but this isn't always the case. Whether it's the end of the school year or the end of the semester, be ready to receive your child's report card without having a meltdown. Use these tips to ensure things go smoothly with your child's report card.

Communicate With Your Child Daily

Don't wait until your child takes home a report card to get interested in their grades. Do your best to open up an honest dialogue with your child about grades and school in general. Allow your child to freely communicate how they're feeling, where they're struggling, and what areas they need help with. Do your best to not get upset if they tell you they got a bad grade on a test and instead focus on getting them the academic help they need.

Focus on the Positives

Once your child has handed over their report card and you're examining their grades, do your best to maintain a positive attitude. Instead of focusing on the lowest grades, praise your child's best grades. Let them know that you appreciate the work they put into getting those grades.

Commit to Future Progress

After recognizing your child's efforts, focus on how to improve the not-so-great grades. Ask your child what may have helped them improve their lowest grades. They may have needed tutoring, more study time, or help with a project. Take these suggestions into consideration and create a plan for the future together. Set some new goals and work together to get your child doing their best.
