School and the "business" of learning has definitely changed since most of us were sitting in the classroom. But the principles of learning have basically remained the same.

However, if you find yourself constantly bargaining with or threatening your child over his/her poor grades, you know there's obviously a missing link somewhere.

What is it that makes some bright children perform so far beneath their potential? How can you as a parent reach your child to motivate him/her to improve their grades?

If you're fed up with getting reports about missing assignments, forgotten homework, and the like, we invite you to take a breather and tune in.

Dr. Michael D. Whitley, Ph.D., author of Bright Minds, Poor Grades: Understanding and Motivating Your Underachieving Child, is here to answer some of your questions on this topic.
