Immigrant parents

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Farm Manager was more than pleased to inform me the other day that the most junior of our Juniors was carrying a 92% average in his second year at U of T.

Hmm… 92%?

On some level, I gotta say I’m kinda proud.

On another level, I gotta say “so what happened to the other 8%?”

That’s what the FM’s parents would have said to her.

That’s what my parents said to me.

That’s what responsible immigrant parents, no matter where they’re from, say to their children to this day. If you’re the child of immigrant parents, I’m guessing you can vouch for that.

Message to immigrant parents; if your kid only gets a 70 or a 60, or, God forbid, flunks out altogether, don’t worry about it.

It’s fine. Everything is OK!

That’s called “assimilation.”

And there’s nothing wrong with that.
