I've seen the gate swing both ways.Originally Posted by ScoutMom;3030135;Why is it always the boys that do stupid stuff like that? My son is doing well this year, but he could still do better. He just doesn't study! He's smart enough that he can get Bs without having to study, so that's what he does. I keep telling him he could get As if he'd just study a little bit. He keeps telling me that Bs mean he is "average". He said "average is good". I counter with "average is great if that's the best you can do, but it's not". I really think it's a boy thing. My friends at work say the same things about their sons, but not their daughters. They refuse to listen to parents - they just have to make (and hopefully learn from) their own mistakes. I hope things work out OK, buglover.
