    How can a High School (A/B) Student get all A's on a card marking?  What should they/parent do?

    Honestly, the best thing you can do is communicate with your kid. If you talk to your son/daughter about what they're struggling with, you can quickly find ways to help them. Tutoring or maybe just library books that explain the subject more clearly can work wonders for your kid. Also, if your talking to your child frequently, you can find out other factors that have the potential to mess with their grade. Communication, communication, communication.

    Also, if that doesn't work, give incentives a try. My friend has to pay his Dad $50 for every class he gets less than an A in, and he's definitely applying himself a lot more this year.

    So, they are not allowed to get an occasional B?  It's good to aim high, but is it now unacceptable to get less than an A?

    I think it might be good to let them express themselves in ways that will not have to be graded. I knew classmates who faced the stress of being expected to make straight A's. They were not necessarily happy or healthy, socially or mentally.
    What can parents do? Offer help, encouragement and love even if they get a B or two.
    If they are getting A's and B's, you should be proud and happy.

    Don't expect the school to do all the work , as a parent you must work outside of the walls of the school. Help your child with tutoring or get a tutor if you can't do the work. Keep your child out of the clouds of television, internet, phone, texting, music that does not stimulate the mind, and yes don't give them enought rope to hang themselves. Children need guidance regardless to how tall or big they are.
    Find out what your child's talents are and cultivate them. Keep them active in activities that will be a growth for their future plans. Know what they plan to study in college regardless to how many times it changes and help them narrow the list so they can focus on one or two areas.
    Spend family time with your child and be a good listener so they do not have to search the school halls for answers. You should be your childs best friend. A best friend is there in the good and bad times. Trust and open conversation will go a long way. You do not need to spend a l of money to help your child there are hundreds of resoures out there, research and get  your child the necessaray tools they need to succeed.

    an occasional A/B is fine. as a parent, do not force the child to score more. this will only induce pressure which can have adverse effects.
    sit and talk to you child, chalk out plans for the day, week, month. give the child ample time for recreation and also time for studies.
    some children would do better with just a few motivating talk, others need their parents support to help them do well.
    so, be with your child, but do not be over-supervising.
