Please don’t tell my kid but if he gets anything higher than a C+ in any subject in school, he’ll be a much better student than this father. I wasn’t the world’s most perfect student, so I’m not going to get worked up unless he doesn’t at least try to get good grades.
Some parents, however, aren’t as forgiving. Some parents are flat-out assholes when it comes to kids and grades, and I get it, but it’s just not in my nature.
This mom cares about her kid’s grades; HOWEVER, it’s obvious she cares more about her daughter’s well-being than her GPA. Here’s the story…
After Hannah spent hours on end studying for a math test in pursuit of a perfect score, she was disappointed to find out she received a B. She told Buzzfeed about her experience, saying, “My ultimate goal was to get the perfect GPA, a 4.0, so getting a B for me personally was unacceptable.” When she Snapchatted a photo of her grade to her mom (yes, her mom is super cool and uses Snapchat), she was floored by the positive message her mom sent back.
This was mom’s reply to her “unacceptable” grade…
“Even failing a test like this, my mom encouraged me with her positivity to try my hardest in school,” Hannah told BuzzFeed.
If my kid comes home with a B I’ll throw a goddamn parade.
