Okay so last week I posted about difficult child 2 getting straight A's. I was absolutely thrilled. Last year he was a C/D/F student so this was a huge deal to me. I just checked his grades again yesterday. One of the A's went down to a B-. The B is in reading, which is difficult child's strong point. He absolutely loves to read. Each night for reading homework he has to read a certain amount of pages and write a paragraph summary about it. I never have any trouble getting him to fill out his reading logs. Each morning I have to sign them to verify he did his reading and I know he's doing it. I have no idea why his grade dropped. When I asked him about it, he gave me the dreaded answer, "I don't know." I am going to email his teacher and ask her what happened. In the meantime, am I being too hard on him? In a rare moment, difficult child 1 actuall stuck up for him and said I was being ridiculous for questioning a B-. She says it's still a good grade and I should be happy Christian isn't getting any D's or F's like he used to. I still think he could really pull of an A if he wanted to. Is this a sign of him slacking? Or am I jumping the gun?
