Man.... that's one of the things wrong with parenting. If the kid isn't doing good in school, test him for ADD. f**k that. How about doing the homework... making sure it's right, and make sure he/she understands it. Extra credit too. Enough of that other bulls**t.
Parents need to turn off the TV AS WELL as the child.
Too many excuses in this day and age.
you're an idiot if you think any parent can control their kids like that. most parents work long hours now a days... im sure if they knew how, they would do everything they could to make the kid better
most people don't realize their potential until they are pushed anyway. that kid probably failed some classes, they couldn't hold him back because of school budget issues, put him in the dumb classes, performed to that level, and he got lost along the way because he never understood the basics. i dont think anyone is lazy or dumb, people just give up on each other too easily
i'm glad that they care about his education. man.... when i was in high school, no way could i come home with 1.22 gpa on my report card. my pops would've k!lled me
word man. white people make it seem like minorities don't care bout their kids education... many of them do, but they don't have the resources or the ability to speak out... they dont have the confidence either. schools usually ignore requests...
ive done research on related subjects in the vietnamese communities in CA... s**ts all f**ked up, yet its still better here than in most places
