Report Card Day

Most parents dread report card day, as this parent shared:

Yesterday, report cards came out.

In the early years of elementary school, I would dread this day. My heart would sink, and I would end up in floods of tears when I opened my son’s report card. We would not talk to him about his report card. If he asked, we’d say he was doing “fine.”

Yesterday was different. I was excited as I opened his report card because I knew he was doing well in middle school. Sure enough, my hard-working son had made the high honor roll.

I immediately Facetimed him from work to let him know how proud I was of the hard work he put into this achievement.

I am also proud of the hundreds of hours he and I have worked together on the Barton System to get him to this point. We look forward to the day when we’ll finish Level 10, but that is still a couple of years away.

Tutoring him has not been easy because his dyslexia is very severe.

I am sharing this to encourage those who are just starting out tutoring their own children and finding it difficult. Hard work, persistence and dedication pay off !!!

I dread to think what our lives would be like if I had not found the Barton Reading & Spelling System.
