Moms! I have a quick question for you!
Which parent’s responsibility is it for keeping track of your child’s grades and learning?
I asked this question inside our parent support group the other day, and one parent jokingly responded, “It’s my kids responsibility”.
First off, I totally agree!
It should be our students responsibility to do their homework, study, do well on tests, and keep their grades up.
But what happens when their grades start to slip? What happens when our kids are struggling to do well in school, and don’t know how to ask for help?
Which parent is expected to step up and jump in to create a plan of success for your child to bring those grades back up? Is it mom’s responsibility or is it Dad’s job?
Who’s job is it to track when the grades are getting low?
Who’s job is it to find the area of learning struggle to help fix the problem?
Who’s job is it to answer a homework question?
Who’s job is it to help your child study for their next test if they ask for help?
Who’s job is it to communicate with the teacher to find a better solution?
The reason I ask this is because, throughout my 10 years of tutoring experience, I have only ever communicated with the moms, discussed learning and set a child on a path towards success with the moms.
In my 10 years of experience, not one dad has ever asked me for an update on their child’s learning.
Even one dad was vocally upset that I was in his home to help his child learn, and made sure I knew that he didn’t want me there.
Moms do it all!
As moms, we are the ones that are expected to do it all! We track, we monitor, we manage our child’s learning because we want them to learn and succeed and have all the tools they need to do well in life!

If you are a Dad that is on top of his game with your child’s grades and learning, please leave me a comment letting me know! I’d love to recognize the Dads for all they do!
