Kids of Absentee Parents
Posted October 10, 2007on:
With our crazy work schedule where Jerry and I get home no earlier than 7PM most of the time, I was almost certain something was bound to give… In my mind, I had to give some slack to my OC-ness in
demanding motivating all my boys to maintain their academic standing. It just wasn’t possible for us to keep tabs or be involved with their studies as much as we wanted to.
Last Saturday (Oct 6th) was the report card distribution for my two elder boys and it was such a big surprise for these “absentee” parents to see both cards with an average of 95… Matt (high school 2) ranked 9th while Kyle (Grade 5 and who missed points last year for a medal) ranked 13th in their respective (honors’) classes.
Almost unbelievable… but true.
