What are you going to do if your child is not doing well in school? My daughter is 8th grader (in Gymnasium) and her grade on certain subject is suffering. Being a parent, it is my duty to support her and listen and to understand what is happening. I talked to her, and she acknowledges that she’s struggling in Math, so I got her a tutor. The tutor gave my daughter confidence, and provided lots of tailored work to suit her needs. KC ended up getting a 1- in Math last week.
