Look. Not every kid is destined to construct the next space telescope or design the most innovative app for your phone.
But does that mean he or she should be failing 3rd grade math?
Not at all.
Perhaps all your kid needs is a little bit of personalized, one-on-one tutoring. You can't be everywhere at once, doing everything for everyone. And you don't need to feel guilty about it, either. Don't we have enough on our plates as parents? I think you know the answer to that.
