Unexpected results

Well, my boy used to be good in studies but recently his results has shown otherwise. I went to his school to collect his report card and I was shocked to see that he failed all his Science subjects. And his teacher showed me his forecast results. You know what..He forecasted only borderline! My goodness! What happened?

Could it be due to his active participation in his band. According to his teacher, a person who is talented in music is usually good in his studies too. His teacher said that he has the 'couldn't care less' attitude about his studies. He should put in more effort.

But I told the teacher that he spent most of his time in front of his laptop. He 'facebook' and plays games.

Well, I only see him when I finish my work after 10pm. He usually sits in front of his laptop and I usually ask about his school work and I believe that he has done it after school while I'm not home.

That was not the case. He has been neglecting his studies. So I told him lots of stuff and tried to encourage him. He promised that he would strive harder after his last performance this Saturday. His father would be horrified hearing about his bad results. So I asked my boy to get better results for his trial first and show his results to his father.

  4. I used to argue with friend's kids who facebooked and chatted online while studying. The parents corrected me that it was safe after all his sons scored averagely. Goodness the father!

  5. It is a fact that the Science subjects for upper secondary gets tougher and the students would need a good teacher. I would blame the teacher for your son's poor results if he didn't try to help the boy.

  16. Both my sons were very active in the band till i asked them to slow down during form five... Eventually they did and they have more time to catch up.. Sometimes training was done during classes that is why they missed a lot of class..

  17. hmmm, i guess he just have to manage his time and make a balance between his studies, his participation in band as well as facebook and games.. i like it that you didn't scold your boy, but instead encourage him and analyze his situation.. hope the dad won't scold him too badly?? :)

  28. I guess since he promised to study harder, his results will improve. Good of you to talk to him and not scold him.

    ReplyDelete
  29. He needs to cut down time playing with computers IMHO.

    Or make him study with you while you work. Tough love works best. ;)
