Don`t Take Your Child`s Dignity Over Bad Grades: Parenting Guide from a School Principal

It's every child's nightmare to have bad grades. Most of the time it's not on the grades itself, but what their parents do to them over bad report cards. Parents often force their children to have good grades in school unaware of long term effect of this act.
