As a parent, you must have been very much concerned about the poor performance of your child at school. Never worry, but you have to accept the fact that sometimes even the biggest schools might even fail to do the miracle. The learning ability of kids differs, but I bring you this good news, that no child is dull.

4. Give your kids some of your time: Always give your kids some of your time. Believe it or not the school or class teacher can not do it all. You can guide them on how to carry out their home works and others.
