Reference: Student commits suicide after getting two Bs for O-levels, mum takes own life 3 months later
This is a tragic story.
The student decided to kill herself because she wasn't able to live up to expectations.
In exams, you can score a maximum of 100 or As. In life, you can score however high you want to. There's more to life than just exams. I hope that all parents who have read the story can take something away.
Comparing your kid against other kids who are performing better is the most silly thing to do in my opinion. You're just going to make your kid feel inferior and what does that achieve? So that he/she will do better in order to avoid being inferior? Why not encourage your kid to learn for the love of learning which will eventually give your kid a better life.
Every parent have their own way of teaching but to make your kid feel bad is not the right way.
