As a child/teen, did your parents pressure you to have an A average and if you did not have an


A average, did your parents consider you to be inept, even unintelligent?

    Also another motivator was denigrating the child, telling him/her that he/she will work at a dead end job if grades weren't up to snuff. Child would be further told that he/she is not apt, stupid, or retarded.

    I was told to make an A in school. In elementary school, I was an A student but in high school and college,a B student much to my parent's chagrin! If one wasn't an A student, my parents looked down on him/her! They were quite intolerant of failures.
