A letter has been circulating from a Yeshiva in Long Island.
It states the importance of not discouraging a child and thereby offers parents the option to solicit a fake report card for their children to see in case they would like them to see a more encouraging report card.
This is the second year in a row this letter has been sent out.
I am curious what your readers think.
Do children need to be shielded from their own poor performance or is it important for them to know how they are doing so they can improve if need be?
