The Underachiever

Mistakes: Common misjudgments and errors in managing the child which may perpetuate or intensify the problem.

  • Quitting on the underachiever. This is the worst thing we can do. As long as we don't quit-even if the student has - hope remains.

  • Thinking it's too late to do anything this year. It is not. Next year offers a new beginning which may be the result of our final influence. That's why we must not quit.
