"Your parents, not knowing this information, need it."
"Your grades, are not good, you are very close to failing."
"Mrs.Letts, my science teacher, says I have a B- in her class!"
"Tell your parents tonight."
"Mr. Thompson, I know that, but you need to pick up the your grades in other classes."
"Mom and Dad, I'm almost failing classes."
"Wow, the hard work paid off".
"This progress, has been great, you have an A- in this class."
Horrified by the news Eric hears, he is now dealing with stress. Can he somehow bring up his grade?
"This improvment, has been great, you should tell your parents this."
Telling the truth, Eric is now grounded. He may not go to his friend's house, and he needs to be studying. This will go on for a week. If Eric somehow manages to make improvment, then he wll go have fun.
"Mom and Dad, My grades, they went from D's to B's and A's!!"
"As a result, we are throwing a party."
The next day at school, there is a test in all three classes. At the end of the day, Eric has made some HUGE progress. His D's changed to B's!
Eric then goes to the principal's office. The principal is very surprised to see him. He congratulates Eric on his lovely progress and grades. The principal then gives Eric a paper of his grades. Eric is going to show his parent that paper.
"My grades are perfect, my grades are amazing, and my grades are A's!"
As a result of this huge improvement, Eric's parents reward him. They are now caring, not yelling, and congratulating him on this big task.
"Eric, I'm so proud of you!"
Eric, his friends, and his parents throw a party over this huge accomplishment. Eric continues to strive to do his best in everything.
