Time for Report Cards

by Sue Hubbard, M.D.

It seems that it is report card time and middle of the semester so many parents are looking at their children’s grades. Hopefully, there were no surprises at your house and your child is doing well in all areas, which includes academics as well as socialization and peer relationships in the younger grades. But, if you were not thrilled with your child’s report card it may be time to sit down with both your child and their teacher for a conference.

The most important thing is to determine if your child is trying their hardest and working to their capabilities. If not, that area can be addressed with some goal setting and maybe a little more supervision of homework and what your child is doing with their “extra time”. On the other hand, it may be that your child is working as hard as they can but not achieving the results that you would expect. In that case it may be worth discussing if there might be any learning disabilities that need to be addressed. Most of these learning differences show up in elementary school, but occasionally they are missed and will still need to be addressed in the upper grades. Discuss your child’s learning style with their teacher and see if educational testing might be warranted to evaluate their learning. This may be done within in the school district or through private educational diagnosticians.

Looking at your child’s report card from the aspect of how they may improve and how you their parent might help them figure it out may be the path to future success.

That’s your daily dose, we’ll chat tomorrow.
