My kids are average kids in school.
Average results, even for maths.
But I know they are happy.

Whenever exam results are released (like NOW😅), I always have to remind them this.

“⭐️Efforts first, marks second.”

(Another thing I told them is marks can go up or down. Reality of life.
To set expectations right.
To remind them to continue to put in their best effort.)

Not easy for me to say.

(Especially when all of us are trapped in the system.)

But I know I have to do it to protect them,

To protect their confidence.

To protect them as kids.

So they can thrive not just in school.

But also in life.

Efforts first,
Marks second.
