We are half-way through the school year. For little children, middle school aged children, high school kids, and last but not least, college kids, the Spring semester is a time of transition. The college kids have their first quarters and semesters under their belts. They get their first set of grades and you may or may not hear the results. If the first year of college is not turning out as you and your child envisioned, you are not alone. Moving from the academics of high school is not an easy move for some kids. A student with high school academic struggles can bring them to college. Even the high school’s academic champions can have problems. If your student is a top drawer student in a high school of 1000, and goes to a college with thousands upon thousands of fellow geniuses, your child may land at the bottom of the totem pole. A child might be getting low or failing grades. This will mean academic probation. This can be devastating to parents and children.
