What kind of grade would you get as a parent? My teenage son just recently got his report card. He had straight A's, except for a C in math. Truth be told, math is his best and favorite subject. He is just opposed to doing homework and would rather just take a test to show his knowledge. While talking to him about this grade, he said I should be happy with a C because it meant he was average. I explained that if he had worked as hard as he could and received a C, I would have been very happy with it, but because he got the C because he refused to do the "busy work", it wasn't ok with me.
After the talk, I started to think about how I would be graded as a mom. Maybe I'm doing C work, although I'd like to think I'm trying as hard as I can. Maybe I'll have to put in some extra effort and try for a B or A!
