It's really wonderful if a child is concerned about their grades and wants to do really well in school. There is a time to be concerned if they are putting a lot of pressure on themselves. If they are so worried about their grades that it's affecting their social life, if they get a stomach ache or headaches because they are so worried about their grades.
