Steps of a Parent's Realization: (Scroll Down)

Elementary School (Primary): "My kid is going to be at the top of their field when they grow up. My kid will be President, Surgeon, Lawyer, Tycoon, or Athlete."

Elementary School (Intermediate):" My child just needs time. When he/she is done learning to socialize, he/she will make progress in school. He/She is immature." 

Middle School: "I've lost my child to social media, television, video games, and neighborhood kids. My child better start making good choices or they will really struggle in high school."

High School: "My child does not have the background to be successful on his/her own. He/She makes attempts to do the work but can't keep up and doesn't understand the material. My teen child has no idea how to help himself/herself."
