We had parent/teacher conferences tonight. It has always been good and tonight was no exception. The teachers had nothing but good to say about Alyssa and Joel. I still wonder what am I doing right? How do I know if I will keep it up? I also worry that my kids have set the bar high early on, so will I expect high marks for the rest of school? Also, my parents were very strict when it came to grades. I got 3 B’s the first semester of high school and was grounded for a month. Recent proof shows that my kids are smart. I don’t want to put so much pressure on them, but I know they are capable of good grades. That’s what my parent’s thinking was when I was growing up. So, on one hand I think my parents were too strict, but on the other hand I can see how it is easy to believe that my kids are capable of good grades.
