Every parent has an idea of what the future of their child should look like. From the
moment they set foot in kindergarten to when they walk the stage at their senior year of high
school graduation to receive their diploma, they envision a life for them. A life that includes a
good college education however, for them to join college, they have to attain a particular Grade
Point Average (GPA) in their school career. Some parents are more strict about their children's
grades, while some are comfortable with their children's effort. In my opinion, I do not think that
it is right to punish a child for bad grades. This conclusion is that some children are not talented
academically and therefore even after punishing them, not much will change.
However, suppose the child is not showing even the slightest bit of effort in their studies.
In that case, the parent should put more emphasis to help the child understand the benefits that
come with working harder (Haelle, 2016). If they don’t show signs of changing punishment can
come in handy. All children have an equal fighting chance of furthering their skill set in a trade
school or community college.
One of the reasons for not punishing children for poor grades is that it will affect their
self-esteem. Children crave approval from their parents, and in situations where they seem to
have failed, they crave reassurance from their parents (Hotz, & Pantano, 2015). When children
do not perform well in school, they desire to be reassured that they had done their best and
improve next time. However, when parents punish their children because of their academic
performance, they pressure the children to want to impress them (Williams, Ciarrochi & Heaven,
2012). This may result in the children becoming perfectionists even later on in life and may not
change their academic performance or even make it worse.
