Teens, Expectations and Disappointments

So, what do YOU do when your teen let's you down?

I say this as I just received Kotch's 1st semester grades for high school and she obtained a 46 percent, which was only that high because her work that I grade was a 95.5 but she couldn't do the test or the translation. And she's the one who wants to make languages her career!

This coming on the heels of Brikhead scoring a 7 (out of 12) on the SAT essay portion. And writing is his strong suit.

So, what do you do?

Do you ground 'em, bribe 'em, or just keep lovin' them knowing that somehow you survived when you made major mistakes like this.....

Ah, the life of a parent ... Definitely not for wimps!
