I was an average student in school, I was one of those students who had to bust my butt to pass...it made me mad that my sister and brother were both straight A students and never studied, me on the other hand studied all the time and made Bs & Cs (if I was lucky)
fast forward...I have 2 extremely smart daughters, Honor Roll every 9 weeks...this past report card Chelsey dropped in every single subject, yes she still made Honor Roll but I don't think it was her best...her average dropped from a 96 to a 91...I put her on restriction until mid-term and if her grades aren't up she stays there...I took away her computer (unless it's school related) and her cell phone...I've always told them that I don't expect perfection but I do expect 100% and I don't think she gave 100% because she never brings books home
was I too tough? do I expect too much?
to add to it, her mouth lately has gotten really smart...she thinks she's always right, she always has to have the last word, she's just like her Daddy!
