In a startling turn of events, a college student has been left to navigate their academic journey alone after their parents decided to sever their financial support due to academic failure.
STUDENT’S ACADEMIC FAILURE TO DISCLOSE GRADES RAISES CONCERNS
The rift between parent and child emerged when the student, rather than being open about their academic failure, chose to conceal their poor performance by offering a series of excuses. This troubling behavior caused by the academic failure pushed the parents to reassess their role as providers, ultimately leading them to prioritize the educational needs of their other children.
BALANCING EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT FOR MULTIPLE CHILDREN AFTER CHILD’S ACADEMIC FAILURE
The student’s academic failure has been marked by challenges from the outset. During their first year of college, they encountered significant academic failure and difficulty, resulting in failing grades across multiple courses. Concerned about their child’s possible academic failure, the parents intervened by arranging counseling sessions to provide guidance and support. Encouraging signs of improvement emerged in the following year, giving the parents a glimmer of hope that their initial investment in their child’s education was not in vain. However, their hopes were dashed when they recently discovered that the student had either dropped or failed every class during the most recent academic year, which led to their academic failure, despite the student’s assertions of satisfactory progress.
