Constance Hall totally nailed it when it came to her reaction on receiving her young daughters school report. I think a few parents could learn from this.
Constance shared on Facebook that her daughter, Billie-Violet, was concerned her mum would probably be disappointed with her school report.
Constance’s reaction? Did she get cranky? NOPE! She got real instead…
Constance wrote on Facebook -
Billie-Violet “mum, your probably going to be disappointed with my report”
Me, “will it say you didn’t try?”
Me, “will it say you didn’t
respect the teacher?”
Me, “will it say you were mean to any of the other kids?”
BV, “no mum of course not.”
me, “well sweet kid, I ain’t gonna be disappointed”
And what do you know, I wasn’t. She got all Satisfactorys and even smashed a high for drama and a high for Art. With the report claiming that she is a “caring and considerate class member”
Academic excellence is not the only achievement school has to offer. #proudmum
Her post has received over 84K reactions. Well done to both Constance and Billie-Violet!
One of the most popular comments on her post was from a teacher (it received over 2300 likes) “I’m a teacher and I wish more parents (and the government!) thought like you! So important to raise children with values such as respect, determination, passion, self-belief than to just concentrate on how well they can multiply or write a story!!”
Well said! We need more of these Queen’s in the world.
