How to Deal with a Poor Report Card?

  • Sit down with your child and discuss the issues at school. See what your child has to say on the situation, and create
    effective dialogue.
  • Be proactive and not reactive. Create a plan and set it into motion. Screaming and punishing may not be the best solution.
  • Contact the school. See if teachers notice anything about your child’s performance and can offer suggestions.
  • Offer your child possible and achievable rewards for success. Mutually create a contract that will allow the child to see the benefits of hard work.
  • Look at past performance. If these types of grades are a pattern, see what the possible reasons are for performance
    trends during the year.
  • Have your child use an agenda on a daily basis. Try to create a system with the school to have it initialed both by
    teachers and parents. This will help with work completion and long-term planning issues.
  • On a weekly basis, help your child organize school materials.
