When children make bad grades at school, try to get to the root of the problem asap. Help them, encourage them, or even hire a tutor. They may need to spend less time playing video games and watching television.
The counselors at school are usually more than willing to help. Your child may need an evaluation to determine if they have any learning problems. Your child may even be a smart kid but just ran into some problems.
