Question and answer
I posted earlier about a child of mine being passed because he did so well on a final, even though he made little to no effort on any of his regular schoolwork. I actually told him I would hold him back myself (that started some controversy) if he didn't do all of his work. If they are given shortcuts, they will take them (Heck, so would I ), and that's not really teaching. Also, the world can be cruel and unfeeling and, as you stated, results are what matter. That is something that has to be instilled in them early and often. DO YOU AGREE WTH THIS STATEMENT? WHY?

User: I posted earlier about a child of mine being passed because he did so well on a final, even though he made little to no effort on any of his regular schoolwork. I actually told him I would hold him back myself (that started some controversy) if he didn't do all of his work. If they are given shortcuts, they will take them (Heck, so would I ), and that's not really teaching. Also, the world can be cruel and unfeeling and, as you stated, results are what matter. That is something that has to be instilled in them early and often. DO YOU AGREE WTH THIS STATEMENT? WHY?

Weegy: The child could have been bored, and did not find the course challenging, that could be the reason why he was uninterested. If he knows the information, then, that is the goal. So I disagree, to a certain extent.

User: yes that is true as well. do you think it help him as well?

Weegy: No, being bored in a course can lead to underachieving, and this could lead to poor study habits. Up the challenge, and that will help him.
