To all highly educated and successful parents out there, what steps would YOU take to motivate


your bright child(I.Q. 130-165) if h/she isn't an A student? Would you use positive or negative reinforcement regarding the paramount importance of obtaining mostly or all As in his/her studies in order to have a brighter future and more life choices? Would you inform him/her than less than stellar grades means an impoverished life w/very little choices?

    There's lots of people who get stressed in the university environment (who are actually really clever) and drop out, high levels of depression in students from pressure to do well and from being far from home or lad culture or debt.
